EVENT: Giving Tuesday 2013
"Miracle on Miramar Street" – Each day, Sr. Alice Marie Quinn, founder of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, prepares and delivers nearly 4,000 hot meals to homebound seniors and other vulnerable Angelenos across 43 square miles of LA County. But she doesn't - and can't - do it alone: 67 paid staff, and nearly 300 volunteers, assist her throughout the month to accomplish this miraculous feat. They begin each morning before many of us are even awake, cooking, filling trays, then loading the fleet of vans and driving to the clients' homes to deliver the meals. Often that visit is the only human contact the client will have all day. It's no wonder clients sometimes refer to the delivery team as "angels." Would you like a chance to earn your wings? We are kicking off a Crowdrise campaign to raise $7,777 to fund a month's worth of gas to fuel the fleet of delivery vans.
