A little over two weeks ago, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to help out at the NYC Rescue Mission in downtown Manhattan. For anyone not familiar with the NYC Rescue Mission, I encourage you to visit their website at www.nycrescue.org to learn more as this is truly a terrific organization. In a nutshell, the NYC Rescue Mission provides spiritual hope, food, shelter and clothing to the needy.
While it’s been a couple weeks since donating my time, along with my colleagues at Delve, the experience moved me and touched my spirit. I do a fair amount of service in my personal time, but this was different for several reasons, but that’s not the point of this.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the team at Delve decided to donate some of our time to help out at NYC Rescue Mission. True to our approach at Delve, we took it on with enthusiasm, tenacity and humility. Whether it’s a hurricane, some other tragic event or just daily life, the point is there are a lot of people in this city, state, country and world who need help. In our daily lives, we all get wrapped up in the frenetic pace of work, family, friends and other responsibilities. I am no different, and it’s easy for me to get sucked into the daily grind. It is not lost on me how truly fortunate I am to have all the wonderful things in my life – I am blessed with amazing kids, terrific friends, a great job and of course my health – physical, mental and spiritual.
