Open Arms Vision:
We see a world of abundance where people who are sick won’t go hungry.
I have set a goal to try to volunteer at least once a month. While searching for opportunities I came across Open Arms. They are a nonprofit that provides meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. A close family member of mine is a 20+ year survivor of cancer so the time spent volunteering here had a special meaning. They offer volunteer opportunities to work in the kitchen, the garden, or deliver the nutritious food. Spending a couple of hours in the kitchen with other people who want to help is amazing. I was touched at the attention and care the organization gives. One example being, adding a package of nausea soothing foods for those who need it. They also have several garden plots where they grow food. I spent one morning collecting produce that will be used in the meals delivered to individuals or families who need it.
