Gleaning For The World Receives $50,000 Grant to Help Families in Central & Southwest Virginia
The Walmart Foundation has selected Gleaning For The World to receive a $50,000 grant toward Gleaning’s Central Virginia Cares program. The check ceremony took place this week in Roanoke, VA.
Gleaning For The World is providing humanitarian relief to its local community, Central and Southwest Virginia, by locating and distributing food, milk, juice and basic daily supplies to hardworking families trying to make ends meet. So far in 2017, we have already provided more than 400,000 servings of milk and juice to our local communities.
“We are grateful for the support of The Walmart Foundation,” stated Reverend Ron Davidson, president and founder of Gleaning For The World. “This grant will provide relief to thousands of hurting families in our community. There is more to do and we ask that people join with us to alleviate suffering right here in Central and Southwest Virginia.”
There are thousands of proud, hardworking families who rely on Gleaning and our local partners when money gets tight at the end of the month. For every dollar donated, Gleaning can place a week’s worth of milk, juice or food with a hardworking family in our local community. The grant from Walmart is an incredible start, but there are many of our fellow citizens that we still need to reach. Partner with us today.
