What Does Gleaning Do?

We utilize donations from corporations and industry; re-purposing misprints, over-production and high quality surplus to help those in need.

We are keeping valuable resources out of the landfill and providing them to people in need.  This allows us to simultaneously help hurting families, help the environment and free up business resources to reinvest in their American workforce.

IN 2016

WE REACHED MORE THAN 7 MILLION PEOPLE WITH HUMANITARIAN RELIEF.

Relief In America.

We are committed to reaching hundreds of thousands with aid in the U.S.

International Aid

We connect humanitarian relief to hurting families around the world.

  1. We provide positive solutions to families impacted by terrorism who are living in refugee camps.  We work with Christian, Yazidis and Moderate Muslims in Iraq and Syria who have fled the violence of the Islamic State.  We also work in Nigeria with the tens of thousands who have fled Boko Haram.

  2. We help women overcome the lack of access to feminine hygiene products.  The lack of hygiene products keeps girls out of school and women out of work.  We provide a sustainable solution to empower these women.  Click here to learn more about our women’s empowerment program.
  3. We provide stuffed animals to children who have never had a toy before.  There are impoverished children who need an outlet for their fears and trauma associated with poverty.  These stuffed animals, along with other critical supplies, provide an emotional support for these at-risk children.  Click here to learn more about our Teddy Bear Brigade.
  4. We provide sustainable job training and supplies to help lift families out of poverty.  In many of the countries we work, people are not looking for hand outs.  These families are looking for a hand up so they can stand on their own.
