Community Service – Project Angel Heart (Denver, CO)
Project Angel Heart was founded in 1991 to address major challenges facing Coloradans living with a life-threatening illness—getting the nutrition they need to get stronger and remain independent in their homes. Many are too sick to get to the grocery store, have to choose whether to buy food or medication, or are too weak to make themselves or their dependents a meal.
What started out as a group of community members delivering donated lasagna to 12 individuals living with HIV/AIDS has grown into a thriving organization preparing and delivering delicious, individually modified meals to thousands of Coloradans living with cancer, kidney/heart/lung disease, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and other life-threatening illnesses. Our delivery area now includes 640 square miles of metropolitan Denver and 164 square miles in the Colorado Springs area, and all meals are delivered free of charge by caring volunteers.
Our partners in this work–from top local restaurants, to donors and corporate sponsors, to the thousands of volunteers who stir, chop, deliver meals, answer phones and more–guarantee that each client will receive nutritious meals made with love and designed to give hope.
