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.
Though our economy continues to rebound and we have hope for a better future for our neighbors, many families in Southeast Michigan still struggle with hunger as a result of illness, job loss, foreclosure, or wage reduction.
Food raised from the Give a Hand for the Holidays campaign will be distributed to those in need through our more than 550 partner agencies in 5 counties, including schools, shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens and church based programs.
You can make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors.
Register your drive now.
