Gleaning For The World is hosting their third collection of nonperishable foods and household supplies this week, Tuesday through Thursday from 10 am until 6 pm each day at Sam’s Club on Wards Road in Lynchburg.
The organization is hosting these ‘Love Your Neighbor’ donation events as a result of – and a response to – the widespread financial stress that so many households are under due to the economic effects of the pandemic. All of the supplies collected will be distributed to those in need in Central Virginia.
Gleaning For The World has nearly 30 local partners (food pantries and churches with feeding programs) across Central Virginia who they will work with to distribute the food and supplies once collected.
GFTW is asking for donations of boxed or canned foods, hygiene items, baby formulas and diapers, as well as household cleaning supplies and paper products.
Financial donations can me made online at GFTW.org/neighbor. Checks can be mailed to GFTW, PO Box 645, Concord, VA 24538.
