Our team had the pleasure of volunteering at Project Angel Heart this February. As many of you know, Project Angel Heart is new to our Charity of the Quarter line up this year.
Our first experience volunteering with this fantastic organization did not disappoint.
Our team was beyond impressed by how organized and efficient the Project Angel Heart team is. We had a great time putting together breakfast bags and “sides” bags to accompany the meals Project Angel Heart sends out each week.
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.
That’s 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.
Volunteers package and deliver each meal, free of charge, to neighbors living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney/heart/lung disease, and other illnesses.
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 readmission rates.
