Messages of Gratitude

 

Recipient: Referred by The Children's Cabinet

I truly enjoyed the benefits of Delivery with Dignity's COVID program. For months I have been able to depend on receiving healthy and tasty prepared meals delivered to my door by a group of wonderful, friendly volunteers. My dietary preferences were always respected and the variety of food choices allowed me to experience foods that were delicious and healthier than I likely could have made for myself. As a senior with health risks, I greatly appreciated the dependability of the program which eliminated the risk of constantly being in public to get food or a meal during the height of the COVID pandemic. Thank you to all the volunteers for your generosity, commitment and good cheer.

Food Hero: Coaching with Grace

“One of our moms lost her job in the casino closures and had run through her savings waiting on unemployment. During her meeting this week, she said that her unemployment had finally come and you could hear the relief. She admitted that her bills were behind and she was struggling just to make it. She said the only reason her kids were still eating real meals was that we had added her to these deliveries. Thank you for helping us help our clients!”

Food Hero: Dan, Volunteer

“It's a beautiful symphony of government, local business, technology and local charities coming together to assist those in need. To be able to participate in a small way is truly a blessing. Great job!”

Recipient: A Client from Communities In Schools

“Jaymee and I would like to thank you Delivery with Dignity as you helped us out a great deal. The food you delivered was incredible and I am so grateful that you were there for us.” 

Food Hero: Mary Brock, Executive Director of Seniors in Service

“We have received so many calls today from our seniors who received deliveries! They are so appreciative and impressed with the quality of the food. What a great program. :)”

Recipient: Teona Clarkson-Couey, Client from the Children’s Cabinet

“They just delivered the meals and I wanted to say thank you for putting us on the list for that! It helps out so much and we really appreciate it. I had our 3 younger kids make thank you cards. They were on our porch but I had to run out and make sure the guy got them lol. If they do it again we would love to be on the list. Thank you again.”
