We love what we do
You know that great feeling you get when you’ve done a good deed? Some of us describe it as “warm and fuzzy.” It may be from doing something as simple as letting a car merge in front of you (why are we all in such a hurry these days?) or helping someone get an item from the highest shelf at the grocery store.
We at LIFE ElderCare are lucky, because we get this wonderful feeling everyday. Why? One, because we love what we do – giving homebound seniors a warm and nutritious meal, a warm and friendly smile, and a warm and caring connection to another human being. We feel GREAT that we can be of such service to wonderful folks in our own community. Two, because people like you – people who donate to LIFE ElderCare – also care about the frail elderly. And the more people who care, the more seniors we can keep healthy with good food delivered to their door.
Someone like Ofelia, who was quite independent living on her own, until she had an operation. Since then, she doesn’t have the energy to cook, much less go to the store. She tells us “if you didn’t bring me my meals, I wouldn’t eat well.” And that means she would likely be back in the hospital.
We are so touched by the donations from the Global Giving community. Already all of you have purchased 810 meals, which means people like Christine, Ofelia, Andrew, and Efigenia (all pictured above) will continue to get meals – and a smile – brought to their doors everyday for 7 months.
Does that make you feel warm and fuzzy? It does to us!
