Gleaning Thanks Community with Cookies and Coffee

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA – Gleaning for the World handed out cookies, hot chocolate, and coffee to shoppers outside Sam's Club on Wards Road Friday morning, as a thank you for the community's generosity.

Donations from Central Virginia provided 250,000 pounds worth of supplies valued at $260,000 for victims of five major disasters.

"This is just a great community, just a community that is so giving," said Michael Justice with Gleaning for the World. "It means a lot to us to say thank you back to these folks."

Gleaning sent 185 tractor trailer loads of aid to 20 countries and provided more than 4 million pounds of food, water, and supplies over the last year.
