Olivia has supported our hunger-relief work for over 8 years. What started as a monthly gift to ensure daily meals for our neighbors facing hunger has blossomed into support that will feed families, children and seniors in perpetuity.
“I’ve been so impressed by the work you do,” she shares. “You go the extra mile to ensure families have food.” As a retired teacher, she shared that she was amazed by the perseverance of children despite being hungry. But also shared the importance of programs like ours because, “children can’t learn when they don’t have full stomachs.”

In 2019, Olivia named Second Harvest in her will as part of her estate planning. Her gift type is one of the simplest ways to have a lasting impact beyond her lifetime. By stating the details of which assets – cash, investments, personal property – she wanted to give, she’s now ensured her ongoing support of children, seniors and families throughout the Northland.

We’re grateful for friends like Olivia. If you’d like to learn more about how
you can join her, leave your legacy, and feed future generations, please reach
