Starting Sunday, April 6th, we celebrated National Volunteer Week at God’s Love We Deliver! We decorated our lounge and had lots of special treats in the Volunteer Lounge. We’re also looking forward to celebrating with all of you in person at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Party on Monday, May 5th. It’s always an amazing night and we hope to see you there!

Our volunteers are truly the backbone of this agency and we’re thankful for you every day of the year. But it’s always nice to have a reason to show some extra love and gratitude for all your time, energy and hard work. Each one of you has made the conscious decision to make God’s Love a part of your life. And while we certainly have a lot of fun here, it’s not always easy. Whether it’s coming to the kitchen at the crack of dawn or after a long day at work, making walking deliveries in the rain, sitting in traffic while van assisting, tackling an overwhelming amount of client voicemails or travelling an hour on the train to package meal kits, you’ve all made sacrifices that enable us to provide over 1 million meals each year to our clients. 1 MILLION MEALS! It’s an astounding number and behind each meal is one of you… chopping, scooping, wrapping, delivering, lifting, filing, calling, kitting… caring. From all of us at God’s Love and on behalf of our clients, we thank you for caring to volunteer!

If you have a volunteer story that you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you! You can post it on our Share Your Story section or on Twitter and Facebook.
