Awareness: Volunteering at God's Love We Deliver

Packing Desserts

Last week we spent an evening covering a baking shift at God's Love We Deliver. What can we say? It was a fantastic night donating time to support a worthy cause. We certainly couldn't have done it without the positive energy of seven incredible women, who helped make the event a complete success!

During our two-hour shift, we packaged hundreds of desserts destined for GLWD clients. You know what happens when your volunteer group's comprised of dynamic, athletic women? They quickly organize themselves into an assembly-line system, sealing and crating desserts in record time! All while bonding, joking and laughing. Maybe, just maybe, we impressed Chuck "The Baker" with our speed...

Custom Awareness Charms
In this spirit of giving, ESD presented each volunteer with a custom charm from our Awareness Collection. Thank you to Em and Jana of GLWD; and to Ali, Ashley, Gia, Jackie, Linda, Ruthie, and Shannon for your time, effort, and compassion. You are truly inspiring! 

Stayed tuned as we plan our next ESD/GLWD volunteer event!

  1. Love that you all did this Erica and I was SO incredibly sad that I couldn't make it. Dumb bronchitis. I would love to join you all next time!
