We are thrilled to announce our newest Charity of the Quarter: Project Angel Heart. We will be supporting this amazing organization from January through March. As a reminder on how our Charity of the Quarter program works, we will donate $10 for every referral we receive throughout the quarter and will also be volunteering with Project Angel Heart. So, what is the Mission of Project Angel Heart? “To improve the health and well-being for people with life-threatening illnesses by preparing and delivering medically tailored meals and promoting the power of food as medicine.” Project Angel Heart was founded in 1991 to address a major challenge for Coloradans who are ill: getting the nutrition they need to get stronger, heal, and remain at home. Many are too sick to get to the grocery store or unable to cook for themselves. Others find they have to choose whether to buy food or medication to make ends meet. This is why Project Angel Heart prepares and delivers medically tailored meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses. Each week, their professional chefs and registered dietitian prepare thousands of delicious meals, from scratch, and tailor them to meet the medical and dietary needs of those who are ill. Their amazing volunteers package and deliver each meal, free of charge, to neighbors living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney/heart/lung disease, and other illnesses. In 2019, they will prepare and deliver nearly 500,000 nutritious meals to 3,000 critically ill neighbors in Denver and Colorado Springs. The results? Improved health and well-being for those in need. Project Angel Heart’s meal recipients report better health, less stress, and more energy. They’re better able to afford their health care and adhere to their prescribed health care regimen. And it’s easier for them to live independently in their homes. Groundbreaking research also shows that many Project Angel Heart meal recipients have lower health care costs and hospital re-admission rates. We are beyond excited to partner with Project Angel Heart during our first quarter. As the first quarter gets closer, we will be posting opportunities to help give back to Project Angel Heart. Be sure to keep a look out for these opportunities January-March of 2020! To volunteer with Project Angel Heart please CLICK HERE.
