suggested ways to connect with your matched recipient
When you call the recipient:
Gauge the conversation. You don’t have to say everything on the script. It is simply a guide for your conversation if you get stuck somewhere. Since the families are aware they will be receiving a call, they will most likely be open to speaking with you. Be sure to be energetic and friendly.
Ending the Conversation:
When you deliver a meal:
We encourage you to really engage with the recipient. Granted, some people may be shy or may not wish to return the warmth. Fair enough. But it’s great that you’re meeting them halfway. While it can feel uncomfortable meeting new people, there’s no need to feel awkward. Some people may feel ashamed of receiving help. Be reassuring. Say “Thank You” and let them know you’re so glad you can do this for them.
