A heart for feeding people – Jim and Kathy Gelder

Like many of our generous donors, Jim Gelder was first introduced to Second Harvest Heartland through a United Way workplace giving campaign while working for ING Minneapolis. His connection to Second Harvest Heartland grew over time, and he and his wife Kathy found opportunities to share their passion for hunger relief, including tours of the Second Harvest Heartland facilities. “We have both seen firsthand how Second Harvest Heartland does what it does,” he says. They continue to support Second Harvest Heartland as well as a food bank in Arizona, where they live now. “We’ve developed a heart for feeding people,” says Jim.
