Public Officials Volunteer with Love on Thanksgiving
As we celebrated our biggest Thanksgiving at God’s Love by delivering 8,400 Thanksgiving feasts, we were so honored to be joined by many of our elected officials and their staff members. They joined us in the kitchen bright and early as well as helped us deliver Thanksgiving meals to our vulnerable clients, children and caregivers. Thanksgiving really is a special time at God’s Love and we were so happy to share the holidays with those who serve our community.
We were joined by our very own Congressman Jerrold Nadler and his staff, as well as Assistant Speaker of the Assembly Feliz Ortiz and City Council Member Carlina Rivera who helped pack out over 8,4500 Thanksgiving meals to clients living with serious illnesses. Council Member Adrienne Adams made a special delivery of a Thanksgiving meal to a constituent and his senior caregiver who were overjoyed to have a special visitor on Thanksgiving morning.
A special thank you to our public officials for making this Thanksgiving truly special for our clients at God’s Love. We were so pleased that we had the chance to share our urgent mission with our representatives, and that they saw first hand the impact of our work on the lives of so many.
