Comments about the Delivery Volunteers:

“The lady and gentleman who delivered were very nice to the family.  They prayed for my family and we are so grateful for everything.”

A couple of friends let us know they were “so grateful” for the sofas delivered to their homes.  One said she was “so delighted with the delivery”, and the other said the delivery folks had a hard time getting the sofa into the apartment, so they wanted to call and express their happiness for that sofa!

 

“I so appreciate the guy who always delivers personal care to me.  I am so glad when he comes and especially when he prays with me.”

“The linens that were delivered were just the right color!  I was so grateful for those who provided the bedding and those who delivered.”
