Thank you, from the Bottom of our Hearts

We are thrilled to report that since launching Volunteer Hub in October of 2017, we have had 13,480 volunteers supporting God’s Love. Together, these wonderfully dedicated people have donated 119,939 hours of service! This is fantastic and wonderful news. THANK YOU EVERYONE for all you do to help our neighbors in need. It means everything to them to be remembered and cared for. Please know how much we all appreciate you!

During this same time, we delivered 1.4 million meals to 7,000 clients. The kitchen introduced 65 new menu items, chopped 70,000 pounds of carrots, and ladled 80,000 gallons of soup. Meal Packaging packed over 3,900 Kid’s Breakfast Kits and tested shipping meals to clients. Delivery drove more than 187,000 miles, Client Services managed more than 105,000 calls from clients and the Finance Department processed more than 32,000 contributions.

Volunteers’ commitment to our mission and their individual and team efforts are absolutely essential in all departments of God’s Love We Deliver. The public is made aware across all messaging platforms that they are supporting you because you are doing what urgently needs to be done. You are champions in every way because of your care and concern. Without the support of each and every volunteer we simply would not be able to do what we do for our clients year round.
