Gleaners Annual Food Drive 2023
Gleaners New Annual Food Drive
The Annual Food Drive is one of the most important events we host each and every year. The donations we receive from our community helps stretch our dollars further and we collect upwards of 6 months worth of food. We know our community is extremely generous and we appreciate all the helping hands during these unprecendented times.
