Arthur is one of the 41 homeless adults aged 50 and up who are provided with private and semi-private rooms at the Moravian Open Door which is one of our partner organizations and a not-for-profit (501c-3) organization committed to providing transitional housing and supportive services to the homeless, distressed and underserved population of New York City. Arthur has dietary restrictions due to his health, and unfortunately does not make enough income to eat two meals a day. After we started to work with Moravian Open Door, we received this email:
"I forgot to mention in my earlier email response that the volunteer who dropped off the food today had the opportunity to meet Arthur - the senior gentleman that I spoke to you about. Arthur thanked him for the food donation from last Friday. We received spaghetti and meatballs among other food items and Arthur ate quite well that day. He also was able to keep from spending what little he had that day instead of purchasing dinner.
My clients are calling your organization a real blessing!”
Stories like these are what keep us going. We would not be able to make the lives of people like Arthur better without your help. We have also attached another letter sent to us by another partner shelter, Helene and BJ's Place homeless shelter. The number of pounds, meals, and partners we work with are only increasing. There are millions of pounds of food being wasted while people go hungry, and we cannot thank you enough for making these stories possible.
