Giving Campaign Season Begins
The holiday season is coming and SLAC is once again participating in the Second Harvest Food Drive. The Second Harvest Food Bank is the primary source of donated, surplus and purchased food for non-profit agencies in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. In fiscal year 2010 (July 2009–June 2010), they distributed more than 45.5 million pounds of nutritious food to low-income people in need in every zip code of our service area from Daly City to Gilroy, and from the ocean to the bay.
The Virtual Food Drive will be available again this year to SLAC users and staff. Just visit https://donate.shfb.org/vfd/ to participate. If you choose to donate this way, be sure to put our special ID #47748 on your check. Donation envelopes will also be available through Ramona Miahnahri in Building 41, office 240C if you would like to mail in a check.
Here are this year’s barrel locations for donations of non-perishable foods:
Building 15, lobby
The barrels will be available for donations through end-of-business, Wednesday, December 15.
For more information on the Second Harvest Food Drive, please contact Ramona Miahnahri (x3571).
SLAC will also be participating in the Family Giving Tree again this year. More to come on that giving campaign later this month.
