Helping Hands to Deliver Meals and Deliver Love

Our volunteer Libby Dale, who started volunteering in November 2019 with her first Client Meal Delivery shift, shared with us a recent experience when delivering, and her overall feelings about volunteering. Hear her story below!

 

“On a van delivery one day, I had a little bit of trouble opening the door to the client’s building. The client opened her window upstairs and started calling out tips to get it open, and soon several of her neighbors pitched in with advice from out their windows, too! In a short time, we got it open and the client received her meals. It was a funny moment that reinforced the sense of community that New Yorkers know and love.

 

"When a client opens their door, it’s so uplifting to hand them meals that were cooked, packed, and delivered with such care." ~ Client Meal Delivery Volunteer Libby Dale

I can’t say enough good things about making deliveries as a God’s Love volunteer. This organization brings such comfort to New Yorkers who are living with serious illness, and it is a remarkable experience to play a small role in delivering care and compassion by way of nutritious meals that will nourish and heal. When a client opens their door, it’s so uplifting to hand them meals that were cooked, packed, and delivered with such care.”
