Donate $5 or 5 lbs to make someone's holiday brighter!
Gleaners is reaching out to business, civic and religious organizations to “Give a Hand for the Holidays.” By holding a food or fund drive between October 1st and December 31st and encouraging your group members to each give $5 or 5 lbs, you can help hungry families in our community have a happy and healthy holiday season.
Food raised from the Give a Hand for the Holidays campaign will be distributed to those in need through our more than 510 partner agencies in 5 counties, including schools, shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens and church based programs.
Gleaners can provide everything you need to host a successful drive:
- Food & Fund Drive Manual, a step-by-step guide to organizing a drive
- A food drive coordinator to answer questions and help make your drive a success
- Food drive boxes, posters, donation canisters, and “I Fed Someone Today” stickers
- A secure online donation page which includes the option to select your company/team.
- Gleaners can arrange a donation pick-up if your collection exceeds 250 pounds
- Acknowledgement on the Gleaners webpage
