Gleaners is reaching out to business, civic, and religious organizations to “Give a Hand for the Holidays.”
With your support, we provided 900,000 meals in 2013. This year our goal is to provide 1,000,000 meals for our hungry neighbors in need.
By holding a food or fund drive now through December 31st and encouraging your group members to each give $5 or 5 lbs, you can help hungry families in our community have a happy and healthy holiday season.
Enjoy a day of Halloween family fun at the Village of Rochester Hills! We will have live entertainment, a bake sale, pumpkin decorating, trick-or-treating, bounce houses, and more! Admission to the event is a food or monetary donation to benefit Gleaners.
