"Celebrate With a Plate" This Thanksgiving

Campaign Encourages Donors to Sponsor a Holiday Meal

November 11, 2013

Celebrate with a plate - God's Love We Deliver.

New York, N.Y. -- This Thanksgiving, God's Love We Deliver is asking everyone to "Celebrate with a Plate" by sponsoring a holiday meal for a client.

A nourishing meal, shared with friends and family, is a holiday tradition that makes the season special. But for many, the holidays can be a difficult, lonely time. God's Love cooks and delivers special Thanksgiving meals for all their clients, who are living with severe illnesses and too sick to shop or cook for themselves.

God's Love also cooks and delivers special holiday meals for the children of all clients as well as their caregivers. In addition, so that no person has to spend the holiday alone, God's Love also offers guest meals to every client.

Supporters can sponsor one or more holiday meals for $10 each. To sponsor a meal, visit

God's Love is also in need of volunteers to deliver these meals, by car, on Thanksgiving morning. To learn more about Thanksgiving volunteering, please email or call 212-294-8158.

So many people are alone during the holidays. Our special holiday meals are delivered with love, to make sure that each and every one of our sick clients knows that someone cares. Share the spirit of the season, and please visit to sponsor a holiday meal today!

"The holidays are always a wonderful time of year at God's Love," says David Ludwigson, Chief Development Officer at God's Love We Deliver. "This year we will cook and deliver more than 3,500 Thanksgiving meals to our clients, their children and caregivers, and a guest meal so they can invite a friend or family member to spend the holiday with them. 'Celebrate with a Plate' is a great way to get people involved on Thanksgiving and make it the special day it is."

Every year, God's Love receives calls from clients who express their thanks for the Thanksgiving meals they receive. One client recently said, "Thank you so very much for the delicious Thanksgiving dinner. I can never tell you enough about how you make me feel. I think you know. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I did, and it was because of you!"
