WE and Wave BCM are proud to announce our first annual Corporate Day of Service!

Our team will be volunteering at God’s Love We Deliver on Friday morning, May 15th, 2015 from 9-12:30.

God’s Love We Deliver is the New York City metropolitan area’s leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. GLWD was founded in 1985 when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS. God’s Love now cooks 5,000 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses in all five boroughs of New York City, Newark and Hudson County, New Jersey.All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, their children and to the senior caregivers of our senior clients, without regard to income, and we have never maintained a waiting list. Because GLWD believes the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, they deliver food within 24 – 48 hours of first being contacted.

God’s Love We Deliver is a non-sectarian organization, providing meals with the strong belief of “food as medicine.” To that end, they employ a team of registered dietitians who individually tailor meals to each client’s specific medical requirements. God’s Love provides all services by employing a small but dedicated professional staff and with the critical assistance of 8,000 volunteers annually.

The Rollin’ Colon

By | Community, Food for thought, Not for Profit | No Comments

From Friday, April 17 to Monday, April 20, 2015, the Rollin’ Colon will be at the Long Island Center for Digestive Health at 1103 Stewart Ave. #301 Garden City, New York.  The Rollin’ Colon is impossible to miss or ignore – a state of the art 20-foot, pink inflatable long, 12-feet high, 10-foot long walk-through reproduction of the human colon. The walk-through educational exhibit has been created to inform the public about the signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer as well as the other diseases of the colon. This fun and interesting multimedia experience provides important health information, helping to encourage colorectal cancer primary prevention and screening across the country.
