Gleaning Collects Disaster Relief Supplies

Gleaning Collects Disaster Relief Supplies

Gleaning collects disaster relief supplies this Friday, Saturday

June 15, 2021 | CONCORD, VA: The officials at NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) have predicted a 60% chance of experiencing an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season this year. Forecasters predict a likely range of 13 to 20 named storms, with the probability of 6 to 10 of those becoming hurricanes.

Of the predicted hurricanes, they foresee 3 to 5 major storms in 2021.

This year’s official hurricane season began on June first, and the staff at Gleaning For The World is ramping up their disaster response program.

The nonprofit organization will be hosting a disaster relief collection at Sam’s Club on Wards Road in Lynchburg this Friday and Saturday, (June 18 & 19) from 10am until 6pm each day.

Supplies collected this week will be held in preparation of Gleaning’s hurricane response in 2021.

“We want to get a head start collecting disaster relief supplies this year,” Gleaning’s president, Jeane Smiley-Mason, said. “When disaster strikes, our team works as quickly as possible to collect critically-needed supplies and send them on their way to those affected by these massive storms. The sooner we can get a truck loaded, the sooner we can get the truck on the road.”

Gleaning For The World is asking the public to donate new, unopened, and unused supplies such as nonperishable foods, sports drinks, paper household goods, baby supplies, pet foods, hygiene items, and cleanup supplies such as gloves and trash bags.

The organization will be conveniently located with their 53-foot tractor trailer in front of Lynchburg’s Sam’s Club, which is a central location to most places in the Lynchburg area. Donors are welcome to shop at any store and drop off the supplies at Gleaning’s truck. Online shoppers can donate through Gleaning’s Disaster Relief Amazon Wish List, which can be found at GFTW.org/wishlist. Items purchased through the Amazon Wish List will be shipped directly to Gleaning For The World.

Monetary donations for Gleaning’s disaster response program can be made in-person during the collection, or online at GFTW.org/relief. Checks can be mailed to GFTW PO Box 645 Concord, VA 24538.

“We truly appreciate the community’s support of our disaster relief efforts,” Smiley-Mason continued. “Because Gleaning’s supporters give so generously – together, we are able to help families and individuals during their most devastating moments after disaster strikes. We thank you for your past support and we look forward to seeing our Gleaning family this week during our first disaster relief collection of 2021.”

In service and partnership,

It’s A Good Day To Do Good

It’s A Good Day To Do Good

“It’s a good day to do good!”

I recently heard this phrase in a commercial, and it prompted me to think about the many ways we can do good. We can accomplish good things as a result of sharing our time, our prayers, our financial resources, our professional experience…the list is endless!

As a Christian, I am encouraged to do good as an expression of the values outlined in the Bible. I especially like the verse 1 Timothy 6:18, which says, “They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share.”

I believe what makes ‘good’ even better (and immediately rewarding), is whe we join together with others, combine our resources and work collectively towards a meaningful and united goal.

The ‘good’ we are able to create through Gleaning is multiplied considerably because of our partnership together. Your prayers, your financial support, your words of encouragement, your creativity – it all adds up!

I hope you’ll pray about new ways you can partner with Gleaning to do good this month! Perhaps that looks like a special financial donation, a devoted prayer time over this ministry, or the gift of volunteering in our Volunteer Center. 

And, if you have any suggestions on ways we can partner together to do good, our team is only a phone call away (434-993-3600). We welcome your call! 

 In Service & Partnership,

Giving Tuesday Now

Giving Tuesday Now

#GivingTuesdayNow

You’re probably familiar with #GivingTuesday (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving) which is a day celebrated internationally, in which we are encouraged to give a donation to the non-profits we stand behind. 

Because of COVID-19, the folks behind #GivingTuesday have created a special day of giving on Tuesday, May 5th. They are calling it #GivingTuesdayNOW.

Nonprofits rely on donations to keep their organizations running. With the current economic issues surrounding COVID-19, and especially with many people out of work, financial donations everywhere have suffered… including here at Gleaning.

We’ve set up a special donation page for #GivingTuesdayNOW. The donations you give towards this special day will be used for the stuff nobody likes to think about – but is necessary to keep an organization running: That’s right… Overhead (electricity, printer paper, phone bills, etc.) 

Your donation will help us continue assisting those in need during this time. We’ve been busy distributing 45,000 pounds of potatoes for hungry families and individuals, and we’ve been supplying PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for medical workers and first responders all around central Virginia. We’ve also been sending supplies to Nashville, TN, and Moss, MS, after devastating tornadoes barreled through, leaving many homeless. …and our international work continues as well. Poverty doesn’t stop when a pandemic shows up. If anything, it gets worse.

#GivingTuesdayNOW will be celebrated on  May 5th, however, you don’t have to wait until then to donate to this cause. Click the button below to visit our #GivingTuesdayNOW donation page. All donations given on this page between today and next Tuesday will be designated for helping Gleaning as we continue our work of helping those in need in this unprecedented time.

Helping With COVID19

Helping With COVID19

Coronavirus Updates March, 2020

Center for Disease Control Warns Coronavirus to Spread Rapidly in U.S.
Global Death Toll Escalates
South Korea Reports 1,146 Cases
Iran’s Deputy Health Minister Contracts Coronavirus
Cases Exceed 320 in Italy – Ten Dead
Infections Keep Mounting After Cruise Ship Fiasco in Japan
Coronavirus Will Be Major Threat in Africa
Americans Should Prepare for Coronavirus Crisis
Stocks Fall as the Coronavirus Spreads

The news headlines are enough to bring shivers down your spine! Everywhere you turn, this
potential pandemic is impacting every area of life – and it is spreading quickly around the globe.

It’s hard to believe that just eight weeks ago, no one had even heard of the coronavirus. The New York Times first mentioned it January 8th – saying there was “no evidence that the new virus is readily spread by humans.” What a difference a few weeks make!

While multiple cities are essentially locked down in China, federal health authorities in the United States are expecting a sustained transmission of the virus and are calling for businesses, schools and communities to brace themselves and plan for potential outbreaks. As one health expert made clear, “The question isn’t if the virus will expand in the US, the question is when…and the disruption to everyday life might be severe.”

Wow.

When the news reached my desk in early February of just how deadly this could potentially be, we began organizing and providing assistance around the globe:

  • We’ve shipped 95,480 protective masks and 3,465 protective garments to China to try to stop
    its spread to key cities.
  • We have prepared a shipping container for partners in West Africa that contains 1,573,000
    masks and 2,500 protective coveralls – it’s on its way to key hospitals in that country.
  • We have begun stockpiling masks in our warehouse to provide assistance inside the United
    States.

We continue to receive daily requests for help from our strategic partners worldwide, voicing grave concerns about the potential spread of the virus in their countries and the limited healthcare services to effectively combat widespread outbreaks. Additionally, we’ve learned firsthand that nothing like this virus can be contained to one country or region. It will spread.

However, the more we slow it down and limit its transmission, the more likely we can save lives and reduce its impact in the U.S.

With that in mind, I am coming to you today with an urgent request for funding. We must secure as many protective masks, garments, gloves and supporting materials to assist in this potentially cataclysmic situation.

Your gift today will save lives. No doubt about it.

Your gift today will benefit your family and your neighbors. No doubt about it.

Your gift today will have a significant impact around the globe. No doubt about it.

Please consider your most generous gift today. We are only able to do as much as you empower us to do. My prayer is that we don’t look back at this situation in a few weeks and wish we had sacrificed a little bit more now in order to prevent uncontrolled havoc.

As you may know, coronaviruses tend to spread from person to person through coughs and sneezes. Staying at least six feet from other people is thought to minimize the risk. Washing your hands is a must. Do what you can to protect yourself and look to Gleaning For The World to be your front-line partner in this critical fight.

God bless you for what you decide to do.

Tennessee Tornado Relief

Tennessee Tornado Relief

Tornado Relief In Tennessee

The images of destruction from yesterday morning’s tornado in Nashville, TN and surrounding counties have replayed in my mind since I first saw the news. 

Devastating stories of residents still searching for loved ones, stories about the 25 victims, children and adults, who have died as a result of this storm, and the stories of those who have lived through it break my heart. As you can imagine, they’ve just experienced one of the most traumatic events a person can go through.

Our prayers are lifted for the residents of middle Tennessee. Our prayers are lifted, and our team has been in motion, starting our response effort yesterday. This morning we began a collection at our local Sam’s Club on Ward’s Road in Lynchburg, VA to collect emergency supplies and shelter items. 

In addition to emergency relief supplies we’re also in need of financial donations to support this effort. Please visit GFTW.org/tn-tornadoes to learn more, or press the red button below to give a financial donation. As is the case with any disaster relief effort at Gleaning, 100% of your donation will be used directly as it is intended: to help cover the costs associated with getting relief supplies to Tennessee. 

Let’s work together to help those in need right now. Please donate if you are able. 

In service and partnership,

Jeane Smiley-Mason

Sharing God’s Love And Giving Back On Valentine’s Day

Sharing God’s Love And Giving Back On Valentine’s Day

Sharing God’s Love & Giving Back on Valentine’s Day  

We’re having so much fun today giving out Valentine’s cookies, chocolates, and bottles of water as part of our Share the Love Valentine’s Giveaway.

It’s really been a great day! Our mission is to share God’s love at home and around the world, and today, we’ve been able to personally thank many of our local supporters and Share the Love with our surrounding community.

Normally, we park our big truck in front of Sam’s Club whenever disaster strikes, and we ask for help from the public. We ask our supporters to share love with those in need. That’s why we chose Sam’s Club as our location to give back to as many people as we can this Valentine’s Day. 

Our truck driver, Steve (pictured above), along with other Gleaning team members will be at Sam’s sharing God’s love until 6pm tonight. If you’re local, won’t you stop by?  

Our supporters come from all over the world — and if we were able to hand each of you a sweet treat today, we would! We want you to know how special you are. 

Whether you live near or far, you deserve many thanks! We cannot do what we do, without the selfless generosity of those who support this ministry. You are a blessing. 

Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Gleaning For The World, 

Jeane Smiley-Mason

President & COO
