Gleaners is reaching out to business, civic and religious organizations to “Give a Hand for the Holidays.” With your support, we provided 900,000 meals in 2013. This year our goal is to provide 1,000,000 meals for our hungry neighbors in need. 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.
An increasing number of Michigan families are facing hunger as a result of job loss, foreclosure, or wage reduction. 1 in 6 people in Michigan struggle with hunger and 40% of those who need assistance are children. Meals provided by “Give a Hand for the Holidays” will be distributed to hungry families through our 550 partner agencies across the five counties Gleaners serves.
Help your neighbors in need by organizing a “Give a Hand for the Holidays” drive. Food or funds – it’s your choice - both are critical to feeding those in need!
You can make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors.
Register your drive now.
