The SOFEI Group, Inc.
April 12, 2011
For more than nine years the SOFEI Group has provided the neediest patients of our dialysis clinic with food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmastime. We have been truly blessed by this partnership. Those patients without family and without adequate financial resources, typically feel abandoned and isolated at holiday time. When they learn that they have been selected to receive a holiday food basket, their faces light up. At times, the receipt of a basket enables one of our needy patients to invite a grandchild or a friend to join them for holiday dinner. Instead of being a recipient, the patient actually becomes a giver and has a renewed sense of purpose and dignity to their life. Projects such as these make the SOFEI Group a tremendous asset to the community. Not only are they a force for empowerment of economically disadvantaged women, they give a great deal back to the community. We are truly grateful to them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
observing the positive effect these gifts have had on our patients.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
help publiicize its existence; so many women could benefit from their services.
