Review for Project Open Hand, San Francisco, CA, USA
My wife and I have been delivering meals in the Tenderloin for Project Open Hand (POH) for nearly 29 years, just one year less that Project Open Hand's inception by Ruth Brinker. During that time period, we have seen how its meals have helped its clients survive and how our simple meet-and-greet interactions have put smiles on their faces and a heartfelt "Thank You" from their lips. We would not have put in these many years of volunteering for POH if we did not believe in its worth to the people who had AIDS or were HIV positive and who bore the social stigma of the disease. We are also ongoing contributors to POH, knowing that, although volunteering is helpful to the program, money is also necessary to keep its services operational. My wife and I are proud to be of what little service we have been to POH and hope others will join us in keeping this great program operating and expanding to meet the needs of the community.
