Nonprofit makes special Mother’s Day deliveries in SWFL

She may not look like your typical angel. But, on Mother’s Day, she is. For a Collier County family, a woman and her nonprofit brought more than smiles during the holiday weekend. They are helping them out when luck seems to be drying up during the coronavirus pandemic.

We had the privilege of tagging along on a Mother’s Day mission Sunday.

A bundle of food and a handwritten card brought Sandra Fox and her mother, Janice, to tears. It turned an ordinary Sunday into a holiday worth celebrating.

“Beverly’s Angels has just … made this day wonderful,” Fox said.

Beverly’s Angels has stepped up during the pandemic by adding the delivery of homecooked meals and some groceries to shut-ins to its mission of bringing more kindness to the community.

“Right now, we need to come together more than ever,” said Faith Schwalback, the founder of Beverly’s Angels. “So it just makes it more poignant. And, to see people who otherwise would skip a meal and not have a nourished meal, it means everything.”

And the organization went above and beyond for Mother’s Day, making sure moms feel special despite the crisis. Beverly’s angels delivered meals and flowers to 50 mothers for the holiday.

Anyone interested in supporting the nonprofit’s mission can visit the Beverly’s Angel’s website for more information.

On top of the home cooked meals, Beverly’s Angels added a bouquet of flowers to its delivery missions to show how much moms deserve to be appreciated.

“And it really made my Mother’s Day memorable,” Fox said. “I’ll never forget this.”
