"This is a special note of appreciation. I am really enjoying the way in which Sandi and all the volunteers give us the courtesy and gracefulness of their time. I really enjoy rides. They see that we are at the proper place and different activity at the right time. They also teach us how to live longer and stay healthy."
"When I got home from the hospital, had a table’s worth of paperwork, feeling weak as a kitten and broke, down and out - you name it. I had just survived anal cancer and my salvation was the daily meal from my wonderful North Miami Foundation for Senior Citizens’ Services, Inc.! From 85 lbs., I gradually got back to 105 lbs. and am feeling better every day. The drivers are courteous, the food excellent and my appreciation is endless. I was a former employee of the Foundation and enjoyed every minute of my 7 years there. I am now a volunteer and proud of it. My love to all and God Bless."
