It's Fun To Do Good and Project Angel Heart knows it!

On September 19th, FatCats had the opportunity to visit with Rachel Newnam, Corporate Partnerships Manager for Project Angel Heart.


Project Angel Heart was founded in 1991. This non-profit organization started off with 12 clients and now they are helping more than 3,000 a year! Project Angel Heart helps individuals and families with HIV, Cancer, Aids, Kidney or Heart problems by delivering medically tailored meals to their front door.

Project Angel Hearts mission is to improve health and well-being for people with life-threatening illnesses by preparing and delivering medically tailored meals and promoting the power of food as medicine.

Project Angel Heart had teamed up with Center For Improving Value in Health and found out that with their meals were improving health in their clients and in return decreasing their client's hospital readmissions by 13%!

Culinary Chefs are always cooking new medical tailored meals while the volunteers prepare them with environmentally friendly packaging. They make 1200 meals a week and delivery the meals to families every weekend. Currently, clients are provided with 5 meals with entrees, fruits, milk, bread, and other sides each week but are planning to increase meal count to 7 starting in October.

The future goal of Project Angel Heart is to be able to increase funding to be able to provide more for their clients. They are also determined to grow their meal for care transition program. With a staff of 35 and 8,000 volunteers throughout the year, they are always looking for more volunteers who love to help.

Thank you Project Angel Heart for all the good you are doing in the community and for helping those who are coping with a life-threatening illness by providing those with nutritious ready to eat meals!

It's Fun To Do Good and Have a Heart 4 Kids in Westminster, CO knows it!

FatCats had the pleasure of visiting with Debbie Smith, a founder of Have a Heart, on September 19th as well as being able to meet with the whole crew of volunteers at their food & clothes bank on September 22nd.

Have a Heart is a non-profit organization who helps families in need of food, clothing, school supplies, and personal hygiene items. Have a Heart was started 22 years ago only helping District 50 and had expanded since then.

Their mission is to give students a better chance at a good education by providing for the basic needs of them and their families.

Have a Heart Project not only helps with food, clothing, school supplies, and other necessities but they also have Spanish to English teaching classes that are held every 2nd and 4th Saturday each month at 8:30 AM. Have a Heart Project also has their Food & Clothing bank open every 2nd and 4th Saturday each month from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM. They are currently helping over 60 families twice a month.

Everything that is donated to Have a Heart Project goes directly to the recipients and all of their services are free to them.

Future goals for Have a Heart Project are to have enough funds to help everyone and to partner with more churches who share the same values in their communities and to get them involved.

Have a Heart Project has no staff and 25-50 volunteers that help throughout the year. Have a Heart Project is always looking for new volunteers and is looking for younger members to be on board willing to help out their community. Currently, they are looking for more drivers for volunteering during the week. They are looking for more blankets, linings, sheets, diapers, mac-n-cheese, canned corn, tuna soups, and hygiene items.
