Good Neighbor Stories Virtual Holiday Food Drive – Help Us End Hunger


Holiday Food DriveGood Neighbor Stories is proud to announce our first virtual holiday food drive! Help us this holiday season raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Our goal is to raise $1,000 between now and Dec. 31. We’re sponsoring the food drive in memory of Dave Severns, who created the Severns-Pease Christmas Light Display in Sunnyvale. Last holiday season Dave raised more than $84,000 for Second Harvest.

The food bank’s officials expect one in 10 residents of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties will turn to the agency for food this holiday season. The economy has driven up the numbers of our Silicon Valley neighbors going hungry; 80 percent of the agencies that distribute food from Second Harvest report an increased need over past years. Help us ensure that families experiencing hunger get access to food this winter by donating through our food drive.

It’s easy to participate. Go to, click on “Friends and Family Drive” on the “Donor Type” drop down menu, and then click on “Good Neighbor Stories” on the “Organization Name” drop down menu.


Once you’ve completed the donor type and organization name (there’s no team name), click on “Next”. You’ll be directed to our progress report:

Click on “Donate Now”, which will take you to a virtual shopping cart:

You can either shop from the cart, or put an amount in the field at the very top and click “Donate”. From there you’ll be directed to a payment form.

Help us make this first food drive a success! Help spread the word to your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s all be good neighbors this holiday season, by making sure others have enough to eat. As the Second Harvest folks say, “Nothing else matters when you’re hungry. Give what matters.” Thank you!
