Main aim of the charity
Showing love and support to the elderly, whose families neglected them, through weekly visits sharing the word of Jesus Christ, and donating supplies in need.
How the employee got involved and why
There was a need from one of our church members, who use to visit her dad at the Geriatric Hospital. While visiting her dad, she realized that the other male patients were not visited. She spoke to the head of our Men's Ministry, who asked me if I would be willing to take a group of men to fill that need.
What work does the employee do for charity?
We meet needs where we see them, in terms of donating monetary, clothing and Christmas Caroling to the men of the Geriatric Hospital. Where there are larger needs to be met, we partnership with other business organizations, we do painting of the wards. Every last Saturday of every month, we visit the hospital and interact with the patients spreading the word of God.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
It would aid us in doing a lot more work for the patients than what we are doing now. We wish we could donate/contribute more on a weekly basis than a monthly, where we could make a bigger and better impact. Currently, some of the supplies (mattress, lining, etc) used by the patients are in desparate need of changing, and not adequate for use.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
Working with these men, have already made an impact on me. Winning with DHL Got Heart would give us an opportunity to expand our charitable work within the Hospital.
