Get Social With Us!

When a disaster strikes near or far, we do everything we can to help. Follow us on social media for frequently updated posts on our efforts in-person to make a difference around the world!

We've been making kids smile by giving away brand new toys and stuffed animals at our pop-up toy giveaways at school lunch lines across central Virginia. This is our way of spreading cheer to young children who can't fully grasp why everything is closed: church, stores, schools, etc. due to COVID-19. To donate to our local efforts, visit GFTW.org/local #kids #gleaningfortheworld #covid19 ...

We're at it again! We ordered a second tractor trailer filled with potatoes (45,000 pounds!) and we're distributing them, right now, to local partners to give to folks needing a hand up.
We were able to purchase these potatoes (at a discounted price) because of the generosity of our wonderful supporters. When you donate to Gleaning, your gift allows us to purchase items that could help a lot of people. Will you consider giving a donation today? Check us out at GFTW.org! #nonprofit #lynchburgva #centralvirginia #appomattoxva #potatoes #gleaningfortheworld

#givingtuesdaynow is happening now!
Check out our page:

#GivingTuesdayNOW is happening next week, on May 5th. #GivingTuesdayNOW was created by the folks behind #GivingTuesday (celebrated after Thanksgiving) to help nonprofits right now because philanthropic giving has had a significant decrease due to COVID-19 challenges. With people out of work, and with many unsure of what the next few months bring, the number of donations to nonprofits across the board has, understandably, dropped. Your donation to Gleaning For The World for #GivingTuesdayNOW will be used for the stuff nobody likes to think about: Electricity, Phone bill, office supplies, etc. ... the stuff that enables us to help those facing difficult times right now (like the PPE we are providing to first responders and the 45k pounds of potatoes we just gave out yesterday.) Will you donate to this cause?
Even though #GivingTuesdayNOW is next Tuesday, our donation page is open NOW. Visit: GFTW.org/givingtuesdaynow (in bio) Text the word DONATE to 1-434-208-1878, or send a check (With #GivingTuesdayNOW in the memo) to GFTW, PO Box 645 Concord, VA 24538.
We appreciate any support you can give at this time. #givingtuesdaynow #covid_19 #gleaningfortheworld #lynchburgva

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we praise you for the unity we are seeing among your children. People of all ages and denominations are becoming more outspoken about their love for you and their faith in you. During this time of social distancing, people all over social media are praising you and praying to you, and we thank you for that.
Lord, today we ask for mercy for those who have celebrations planned in the coming days. Weddings, birthday parties, retirement celebrations, and other events take time, money, and resources to put together. Lord, help those who are cancelling their celebrations to rejoice in your love, and please help them to be able to recover from any financial woes brought on by COVID-19.

With current restrictions in place, Lord, we ask that people are able to share each other’s joys in unique and creative ways. We thank you for the technology in place that helps loved ones celebrate special moments together, even when they are apart. Thank you for the love of friends and family.

We pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

Romans 5:3-4

We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Join our Facebook prayer community: Praying through the pandemic)

Remember, when you shop online at Smile.Amazon.com .... You still use the same login info as Amazon.com... but on this site, you can choose to give a portion your sale money to the charity of your choice. This is a FREE WAY to support the nonprofits your love. Will you switch to Smile.Amazon.com and support Gleaning today? ...

Find us on Facebook and join our new online prayer community called Praying through the Pandemic. Join us as we pray, each day, for those affected by COVID-19. #love #prayerchangesthings #covid_19 #gleaningfortheworld ...

How can you help support nonprofits during this time?
Are you shopping on Amazon? Did you know... if you shop on smile.amazon.com instead... (with your regular Amazon login info)... you can select Gleaning For The World as the nonprofit of your choice?
You can purchase the items you regularly buy on Amazon... but the difference is, on smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate a portion of your sale to Gleaning (once you choose us as a donation recipient). It doesn't cost you anything!
Making this small change in the URL (smile.amazon.com) will make a big difference to the nonprofits you stand behind. As you can imagine, nonprofits are expecting to see a drop in donations because of what is happening across the nation due to COVID-19. If you are shopping on Amazon, would you consider switching and supporting Gleaning For The World? (Amazon and Amazon Smile are mirrored websites.) #nonprofit #lynchburgva #appomattoxva #gleaningfortheworld
