Our Food Drive, supporting the Second Harvest Food Bank is in the books. The event was plain gratifying on so many levels.
- Over 20 Yosemite Region members as well as Redwood Region, Loma Prieta and Sacramento Valley participated!
- We contributed about 125 “grocery bags” to the food bank — filling up three full sized pick-up trucks!!
- In addition to food donations, four members make cash donations to the food bank, including one from as far away as Peach State in Georgia!
- It just FELT good. Anthony Vierra summed it up ” … we did a good thing today!”
The board’s preparation was detailed and responsible as possible. Event Chair, Larry Inman worked with the Second Harvest management to coordinate particulars of the donation and Dave Boyd used his work experience to develop a “Safety and Procedures” plan to reflect all manner of “social distancing” and stipulated PPE. Brian Sturkie was in frequent communication with PCA Vice President Cindy Jasicin to secure PCA buy-in. The request for event insurance ultimately went all the way to the full PCA Executive Committee, with Collin helping to present “our case”.
In the end, with full PCA backing, the event went off without a hitch!
Make sure to check out the “Photo Gallery” on the website for photos of all the participants and organization.
We also have to give a BIG shout out to Nico and Victoria of Migliore Motorwerks for their support, hosting the drop-off location.
