Recently I have been volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank and I have enjoyed the joy of giving back. Â Life is full of challenges and there is something about sorting cans and fruit that puts everything in perspective.
Last week we sorted oranges, a whole lot of oranges in fact – we bagged over 1,275 bags of oranges for Second Harvest to distribute to area agencies to families in need.
You may recall that our team volunteered there a few years ago and even held a food drive that raised approx 1,000 pounds of food. Â It is great to be a part of a company like SummerHill that appreciates the importance of giving back to our local communities.
Looking for a way to give back this summer? If you’ve got a garden with extra produce to share, be sure to check out the donation options. Or if you’ve got an hour or two or three to spare, check out the volunteering options in San Carlos or San Jose.
