Iconic New Yorkers Rosie Perez and Zoe Saldaña Voice God’s Love We Deliver PSA

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to announce our first new public service announcement (PSA) in over two decades, voiced by iconic New Yorkers Rosie Perez and Zoe Saldaña, launches today.

The goal of this PSA is to re-introduce God’s Love to New York City. Founded in 1985 as a response to the AIDS pandemic, so many know of our life-saving beginnings, but may not know that our program now addresses over 200 individual diagnoses, such as cancer, heart disease and COPD, in addition to HIV. And we continue to change to meet the ever-changing needs of New York City, having expanded to serve individuals living with gestational diabetes and former U.S. military members living with a chronic illness, mental health condition, and/or substance use challenge, in the last two years.

It is our hope that the PSA engages potential clients and their families and referral networks, excites new volunteers in to signing up for shifts for the first time, and brings new donors into our community of supporters.

This PSA would not be possible without the fabulous Rosie Perez and Zoe Saldaña, who voiced our PSA in English and in Spanish, respectively. Please watch our PSAs below!

“God’s Love We Deliver is an iconic food and nutrition nonprofit in New York City,” says Rosie Perez. “For nearly forty years they’ve not only fed, but cared for and nourished, New Yorkers living with severe and chronic illness in need of medically tailored meals. Being sick and hungry is a crisis that demands an urgent response, and God’s Love We Deliver always delivers. I’m proud to be a part of this important campaign introducing and reintroducing God’s Love to our beloved City.”

“I am so proud to be a part of raising critical awareness for God’s Love We Deliver,” says Zoe Saldaña. “God’s Love delivers not just food, but the right, nutritious food, to New Yorkers affected by severe and chronic illness, at a time in their lives when they need it most. No one should face the dual crises of hunger and illness. With our support, God’s Love will always deliver to our New York neighbors in need of the right food and nutrition, and they’ll do it with all the love, hope, and dignity God’s Love provides.”

The need for medically tailored meals and nutrition education and counseling for New Yorkers affected by illness only continues to grow. Every day, more and more people reach out to us for help. With the support of our donors and volunteers, we are able to meet this ever-growing demand with no waiting list. We thank Rosie and Zoe for giving their time and talent to our PSA, helping us grow our presence in our beloved New York City so we can be there for all those who need us.

And remember: if you or someone you know in the NYC metropolitan area could benefit from our medically tailored meals and nutrition education and counseling, please reach out. Thanks to your support, we’ll always deliver!
