Review for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Inc., Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I get to talk to people who benefit from the food distribution.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a larger budget.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the workers know they are saving lives everyday.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

humble, hard working, compassionate.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

feed many more people that truly need it. They are helping people faced with the worst economy in the United States.

Ways to make it better...

I don't think it could get any better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the worsening of the economy, too many hungry people to feed.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
