Hello, I hope you and your family is doing well. I am so thankful this Thanksgiving! I would like to wish you and your family a very special Happy Thanksgiving. The past few days have been a wonderful experience. I am at a loss of words to express the joy that Iâ€™m feeling about our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Senior Feeding. My heart is filled with so much love and joy! With the help from my team, volunteers including youth, we prepared, packaged and delivered close to 400 meals to senior citizens. We are happy that we were able to feed more seniors this year. Last year, we fed 223 seniors in our community. Our primary goal was to feed seniors located in Jersey City; however, we fed seniors residing in Bayonne, Union City, North Bergen, West New Year and Guttenberg. Once again, it was truly a great event, not only for the seniors, but for all involved to make this day a success.
Within an hour of our first delivery, we started receiving thankful calls from seniors who received their meal. The feedback that we received from some of our delivery and on site personnel is truly heartfelt and special! It was a true blessing to deliver meals myself to seniors. I’ve received hugs, smiles, thanks, and most of all LOVE. There are so many people that I would like to thank. First and foremost, I would like to thank GOD for allowing me to help others. My husband, who is my rock, no matter what, he is always there right by my side. My team who believes in me, supports me and in the mission of AngelaCARES Inc. Our youth volunteers, they go above and beyond to volunteer and help seniors. To everyone who donated, cooked, volunteered off and on site, delivered meals I am truly grateful and thankful for all of you!

I am still feeling the love, joy and thankfulness of our event! I look forward to next yearâ€™s event.
Did I mention we also donated 30+ meals to help feed the homeless and needy? Yes, we did and it felt great! GOD is truly awesome!
