CELEBRATING THE VOLUNTEERS WHO HELP FEED NEW YORKERS AFFECTED BY SEVERE ILLNESS
April 28, 2023
At God’s Love We Deliver, volunteers are the heart and soul of the organization. God’s Love We Deliver is New York City’s only nonprofit provider of medically tailored meals and nutrition counseling for people living with life-altering illnesses. With the help of a community and thousands of volunteers, the organization’s services are not only free of charge to clients, their children and caregivers, but the meals are quite literally made with love.
During National Volunteer Week, God’s Love We Deliver celebrated its community of volunteers through the theme Thank You for Being a Friend. Volunteers were treated to delicious pastries by God’s Love Pastry Chef Dorothy Auer, chocolate from Tony’s Chocolonely, thoughtfully designed Bombas socks, Centric Brands goodies, a special gift bag filled with products from L’Oréal and more. Volunteers also had the opportunity to win Delta Air Lines ticket vouchers, gift certificates to Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem, and tickets to see The New York Mets in action.
Last year, thanks to thousands of dedicated staff and volunteers, God’s Love delivered more than 3.2 million meals to more than 10,500 individuals. God’s Love has daily opportunities available in kitchen prep, meal packaging, delivery, and office duties. When you reach out to God’s Love to get involved you’ll encounter a stellar Volunteer Department staff eager to answer your questions and set you up with the shift that works best for you.
