Help MTG Give Back to the New York City Community
Have you thought about doing some volunteering in the city but not sure where or when? Well, MTG has got you covered! We are excited to announce that once again we are having our MTG Gives Back event on Sunday April 17th, 2016 at God’s Love We Deliver, 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. (More information about the organization is below.)
Starting at 10am, we will be working on the kitchen prep shift, which involves peeling and chopping vegetables, forming meatballs and hamburgers, and packaging meals—and having fun in the process. You’ll have to wear clothes that cover your shoulders, underarms, knees, and toes, and remove watches, bracelets, dangling earrings, and chunky rings.
Before coming, you’ll need to complete a volunteer waiver.
Please, register with MTG so I may have a head count of who is coming! This is a private event just for MTG, you may bring a guest!
For more information, please contact Nader.Kassis@gmail.com

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 we believe the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, we 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, we 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.
