I often tell my friends that if all non-profits were run like Gleaners, our world would be in a much better state. They are efficient and resourceful, nothing goes to waste. They truly care about the dignity of their clients, they cherish and respect their employees and everyone I know who works there really works their fingers to the bone to get things done. It is a happy place, their employees love what they do. When you walk into the warehouse, you really feel the love. I would say that in this economy, no one is doing better work for our country than Gleaners.
I have been doing Social Work for 11 years and regardless of the population of people i assist, Gleaners has always been an option for those less fortunate. They have provided food for homeless teens and teen mothers, the elderly, foster care homes and organizations, the mentally ill, low income, 1time or new unemployed families....EVERYONE. I am truly proud to have associated my work and effort with an organization who's is focus is on the community. They are still located on the east side of Detroit and see first hand how their generosity and charity affects people. i wish them years and years of service.
