Project Angel Heart delivers meals to Colorado Springs and Denver families dealing with life threatening illnesses, much needed help during a time of crisis.
They take meals to people's homes every Saturday, including Heather Shidler, who has some days when she can't get out of bed.
"I have muscle weakness from my throat all the way down and it comes and it goes and it's up and it's down and I have good days and bad days and some days I can get up and be functional and some days I can't," said Shidler.
She says the meals are very good and easy to prepare.
Sue Ager with Project Angel Heart says their clients range from 5-years-old to 102 - with a wide range of illnesses so the meals are modified to fit clients needs.
"This year we are on track to serve 300 clients in Colorado Springs and deliver 70,000 meals," said Ager.
With their fundraiser, Pie in the Sky, this year they're selling pies for $25 each.
"All proceeds go to client meals so one pie will feed one client for a week," Ager said.
One less thing for people to worry about, already dealing with so much.
"An incredible help because at this point I can't even get to the grocery store to do my own shopping so if I didn't have meals delivered we would really be in a crisis," Shidler said.
