God's Love We Deliver
Tonight I attended the Golden Heart Awards Dinner for God's Love We Deliver, a favorite NYC organization.
The mission of God's Love We Deliver is to improve the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition. We prepare and deliver nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. We also provide illness-specific nutrition education and counseling to our clients, families, care providers and other service organizations. All of our services are provided free of charge without regard to income.
The staff at GLWD is simply phenomenal but their work would not be possible without their army of volunteers, they prepare and deliver close to 1 million meals a year and work hard to create nutritious and tasty meals for their clients. For the past 4 years, I've volunteered with them on Thanksgiving or Christmas to deliver clients their meals. It is truly a humbling experience and such a wonderful way to spend a few hours on these holidays. If you are in NYC during the holidays, you should consider volunteering with God's Love We Deliver.
