"I've been extremely blessed during this time," commented Dove. "In return, I just want to do my part to give back to those who may need an extra hand. It has been a wonderful, fulfilling experience."
Residents took notice and offered their assistance by picking up the cooked and packaged meals from her home and delivering them to the recipients. She also received volunteers from GIS analysts who mapped out the routes for deliveries to make it easier on the volunteer drivers. Since getting the additional assistance, Dove's efforts were able to expand from just veterans and elderly in West Covina to single parents, essential workers, and those who have been financially impacted throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Orange County, California. It's expected that the good news of this open-hearted work will inspire people in other communities to take similar actions as needed, both during the pandemic and afterward.
Safety was a top-priority for Dove and other volunteers. The food deliveries were no-contact by assigning time-frames to the recipients, ringing the doorbell upon arrival, and leaving the food inside of a protected bag at the door. On May 9th, 85 meals were delivered to homes and places of employment. Dove documented the process in a vlog on her YouTube channel and the response continues to be passionate.
