On Wednesday, the couple helped deliver meals to 20 people with critical illnesses, according to the organization’s executive director Richard Ayoub.
“They told us they heard our drivers were overloaded and wanted to volunteer to lighten the drivers’ workload,” Ayob said.
“I am blown away that they chose us,” he added. “They care about our vulnerable population. Our clients are most at risk to contract the coronavirus, having compromised immune systems including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and most are over the age of 60.”
The volunteering comes as Prince Harry and Markle decided to donate over $112,000 from their 2018 wedding broadcast to help feed families in Los Angeles. As previously reported, the BBC broadcast was viewed by roughly 1.9 billion people. At the time, the plan was to donate any money made from the broadcast to a charity the couple chose.
