Empleado destacado: Conozca a Marian

As Director of Donor Relationships and Planned Giving, Marian Eidson cultivates and stewards Second Harvest donors. Her work helps to ensure that our Feeding Programs have the funding they need to continue providing food assistance to those at risk of hunger in Middle and West Tennessee.

¿Cuánto tiempo ha trabajado para Second Harvest, cuál es su función y describe un día típico?

I have been working at Second Harvest for almost ten years.  My role is to work with a group of individual donors – engaging them in our mission and drawing on their passion and interests to make a difference in the lives of those who are food insecure. I seek to educate and involve our donors further so they will understand the need and support the food bank’s mission through gifts of their time, talent, and treasure. 

There really isn’t a typical day. I may be meeting with donors face-to-face to provide updates and ask for a gift, or I might be meeting with my Individual Giving Team to discuss future strategy. A large part of my role is keeping the donors in my portfolio updated on how Second Harvest is putting their generosity into action. 

¿Qué es lo que más disfruta de trabajar para una organización local de lucha contra el hambre?

I most enjoy interacting with our donors, specifically in person, to discuss our work and to ask for their assistance to sustain our mission.  My favorite place to meet is in a donor’s home because it demonstrates the donor’s trust to invite me there.

¿Cuál es uno de tus recuerdos favoritos de trabajar en el banco de alimentos?

I loved when our entire organization came together to execute the Holiday Mobile Pantry in December 2020. There was such a wonderful spirit present as we worked together outside on a beautiful day to accomplish the same goal of providing food for those facing hunger. It was also great to see everyone since we had not been able to be together in person for quite a long time due to the pandemic.

Cuando no está trabajando, ¿qué le gusta hacer en su tiempo libre?

I enjoy walking in my neighborhood, cooking, reading, growing and arranging flowers, and being with family and friends.
