Thanksgiving at God’s Love

Thanksgiving is a very special time at God’s Love for our volunteers, staff, and clients, and we want YOU to be involved! Join us in the kitchen in November for additional food prep shifts, decorate holiday bags from home, or deliver meals on Thanksgiving with friends and family. Volunteers will pick up meals from distribution centers located in each borough of NYC and deliver them directly to clients’ homes. Every hour you spend helps us make the holiday a cheerful and memorable time for our clients.

Volunteer positions for Thanksgiving 2022 include:

  • Driver – volunteers will use their own vehicles to deliver meals to 6-8 households, all in proximity to each other.
  • On-Site Assistant

In addition to delivering holiday meals, volunteers will deliver a special Thanksgiving bag filled with holiday treats.
