(NEW YORK) — As New York City continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, local charity organizations have been stepping up to do their part for the city’s most vulnerable.
God’s Love We Deliver, a non-profit that delivers medically tailored meals to sick clients, is undertaking a massive volunteer effort this weekend to feed those at the greatest risk for COVID-19.
Around 150 volunteers will join GLWD staff to deliver 140,000 shelf-stable emergency meals to meet 14 days worth of clients’ daily nutritional needs. They’ll be serving those in need across New York City, as well as Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York and Hudson County, New Jersey.
The effort begins Saturday with a special packing session to ready the meals.
