Review for Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Second Harvest Food Bank organisation has boosted the passion imparted in me to give back to the hungry to the highest level in every way. No other organisation, to my knowledge, is managed in the way that Second Harvest is. To be able to extend .96 out of every dollar to give back to feed the hungry is beyond what anyone could ask for. For that reason alone, I have emerged more passionate and more energized to contribute all that I can while rallying others to give generously back to the poor and to feed the hungry. I sincerely believe that Second Harvest is one of the most honorable organisations that that has risen to not only fight hunger, but will help eliminate hunger, first locally and then globally. No child, no woman and mo man should have to go without water and food. I believe these two essentials are everyone's birthright and what Second Harvest Food Bank strives for. Second Harvest will play a key role in the elimination of hunger, this is their destiny and my pledge to do my part to help them achieve this objective. With many thanks for affording me the opportunity to share my review o Second Harvest Stay Blessed! Cheers Carlos

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

ways that I have not witnessed by any other organisation that I am associated with.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Host a signature event each year, calling on Corporate America, [from technology to Real-Estate to banking to Construction companies] to all come together as ONE and show the rest of the company that if California can eliminate hunger locally and then all over California, then we can take that same formula and eliminate it in all America.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Humility, their incredible leaders and the leader's willingness to help my charitable functions benefiting SHF be successful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Stellar! Filled with excitement and passion about what they are doing!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Almost acheive its goal in operating expenses for one year

Ways to make it better...

no if, my experience was incredible.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The next CEO must be passionate and fully dedicated to the cause. He/or She must understand that every day will render roses or thorns also along the Journey. Thorns ignite us while the roses allow us to reminisce on the great accomplishments during our Journey. We have to remember that this life is seasonal and that for everything their is a season, that CEO needs to be armed with knowledge, wisdom and instinct , with these ingredients, they will know when to walk into our season and make a profound difference.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I believe that feeding the poor and the hungry with healthy food should be our #1 priority in life. To work with an organisation with this clear focus is to work with a team that has its priorities straight. Everything else will fall into place such as good health, focused education and happiness. I realise it will not make all problems go away, but this is an issue in which we as humans who have the necessary means can control or contribute heavily.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
