Friends and neighbors,
Yesterday we celebrated our 365th day of uninterrupted deliveries! Every single day, over the past 365 days, we had drivers on the road: what a milestone!
This extraordinary achievement was only possible through the efforts and dedication of all of our volunteers. I was going to list everything it took to make this happen, but, instead, I think I’d rather look forward:
Many of our volunteers have been putting in enormous efforts to make our new Free Groceries & Meals Program take off: they all are truly amazing! It is thanks to these efforts that, after only 4 weeks of history in this program, we were able to ship, last Monday, over 800 meals and meal-equivalents to the members of the free meal programs, with more to come every future Monday!
Two more, quick stories:
the first person to whom we delivered groceries, 4 weeks ago, burst into tears because she had not eaten all day…
a brand new driver heard last week on his first delivery an 88-year-old member tell him: “you are the reason I am alive.”
Together we are making a true difference, as neighbors, and as a community. Thanks SO MUCH to all the selfless volunteers of our organization, and to all of the members who honor us with their trust!
