Gleaners makes miracles! They have a tireless staff, and army of volunteers and an amazing impact on the Metro Detroit area! They operate at an amazing cost and spend every available penny on helping people in need. Gleaners people are good people doing great things! I have volunteered with them at numerous events, and it's a great chance to help out in the community. So often, "helping a charity" means simply pulling out the checkbook, but Gleaners allows you to help at ground level. Meals on Wheels, the food bank, stuffing holiday boxes, are all great opportunities to get directly involved with some of the great things Gleaners does.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
amazing. Everyone was so appreciative of the help, I really felt like I was part of something bigger.
