I really enjoy volunteering at Gleaning for the World. The staff is friendly, the place is clean, the work is a blessing knowing that others are being helped by the little that I do. My church ladies circle volunteer every other month to do whatever they need done. Recently I helped stuff envelopes. Met some other nice folks and enjoyed being a help. Keep up God's work Gleaning. You are making a difference.

I and others from our organization volunteer monthly with Gleaning for the World, usually to assist with sorting and packing. We find the employees to be well organized for our arrival and clear with their direction so that the time is used efficiently. All staff members that I have met are kind and truly dedicated to the work that they do. GFTW publishes their financial statement for everyone to see that they use the majority of their funds to help people in need in the US and around the world.

We support GFTW with our prayers and monthly giving because we have witnessed how efficiently this organization is run. Unlike some organizations that are top-heavy with well-
paid staff, they operate with minimal staff and volunteers who believe in the work that is
being done by GFTW. It amazes us to see how, with God's help, GFTW's trucks are usually
some of the first to respond to needy areas. We are blessed to have a part in this wonderful
charity.

Gleaning For The World is a nonprofit to which I feel 100% comfortable making donations. Their location is not far from where we live and we see first hand what they are doing. Whether it be assisting victims of natural disasters locally, nationally or internationally, they are always one of the first on the scene with much needed supplies. Ranked by Forbes as "The Most Efficient Large Charity in America", almost every bit of the donation goes to the charity itself. In this day and age of highly paid CEOs and overhead with little of the donation actually benefitting the cause, GFTW refreshingly demonstrates what true charity is!!!

I have never seen a charitable organization quite like Gleaning for the Word. The president is fully committed to helping others that have lost pretty much everything they own due to a natural disaster or some other life changing event in their lives. This commitment resonates to anyone involved in this ministry. I, unfortunately, like I'm sure a lot of people these days, have become skeptical of a lot of charities after hearing reports of poor financial management within the organization but this one I have seen operate personally and that is why I donate and help out as much as possible.

Gleaning For The World is a fantastic nonprofit organization that is run with Christian beliefs and their amount of use for the cause they are helping far exceeds the "big name" organizations with the overpaid CEO's. Go on their website, www.gftw.org, and check them out and don't forget to DONATE.

Thanks,

Our church has supported this mission since it moved into our area a number of years ago. Each time we go to help, they are set up, ready for us to get right to work. Their employees are cheerful and knowledgable which helps make our time there productive and worthwhile. From Liberty University students to senior citizens, there's some way everyone can help. Their efficiency has always impressed me, and their maximum use of every dollar that comes in is admirable. God has truly blessed this work.

I have given to Gleaning for several years now, after hearing about them for quite some time. They are faithful to send out reports detailing the current people and events they are aiding, and what I really like about them is that they can 'stretch a dollar' to get the maximum benefit from our donations.

Geaming for the world uses a lot of Volunteers for sorting and inventorying. When a category 3 hurricane struck part of our county they were there with water and other necessities. We donate a small amount to Gleaning monthly.

I started helping Gleaning two years ago. I consider Gleaning my second home. I sew for the WINGS program. I believe Gleaning is an awesome program for meeting the needs of hurting people around the world. It is the hands and feet of God reaching a hurting world.

I have been a supporter/donor to GFTW for five years...they are always ready to go as soon as a disaster strikes, and are staffed almost entirely by volunteers. I count it a privilege to be a part of GFTW's mission to bring hope and help to hurting families, not only in the USA but worldwide.

I have supported Gleaning for the World for two years. I am a believer in helping those in need either from poverty or storms. Gleaning for the World has supported those in other countries and also in the United States. Most recently they gave water and needed supplies to a local community damaged by a tornado. I support Gleaning for The World monthly with donations. I am truly confident in this organization. They are first class in offering support,

Gleaning For The World is a wonderful group of people and volunteers that help feed, clothe, house and assist the medical community to provide care to those in need. I have been involved as a volunteer with Gleaning since the day the ministry began. This group is a Christ- led ministry doing work daily to save lives with humanitarian supplies and win souls for Jesus Christ. Check out their website at www.gftw.org.
