The holiday season is a perfect time to volunteer for rewarding causes and our San Francisco, CA team did just that. The local team, led by David Eddings, managing director, put in the extra hours with Project Open Hand, a California based non-profit organization that “provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors.” This group serves San Francisco and Alameda Counties working with more than 125 volunteers on a daily basis to make sure the community is served with meals and groceries. Their focus is to take care of community clients who struggle with “serious illnesses, isolation, or the health challenges of aging.”
“Team DIVERSANT San Francisco chose Project Open Hand because of its influence in our community dating back to 1985 helping serve those less fortunate individuals here in the Bay Area fighting several ailments as well as the health challenges associated with aging,” stated David. No doubt that this organization continues to make a positive impact on the community by preparing “2,500 nutritious meals and providing 200 bags of healthy groceries on a daily basis.”
“Volunteering with Project Open Hand was fulfilling, exciting, a great way to give back, and helpful. It was hard work in the kitchen striving to serve so many, but worth every bit of effort,” commented local team members. One other question posed to the team was what moment really stood out for the team while volunteering. David shared the following, “The best moment might have been when one of the fellow volunteers approached the Project Open Hand Coordinator leading the event, and as we all paused for a moment, to share how she was once a recipient of Project Open Hand’s kindness providing meals as she battled a very serious illness. She shared that she has since fully recovered and was compelled to give back her time alongside volunteers like our DIVERSANT San Francisco team giving to such a worthy cause
