The Neighborhood Gleaners will be hosting a Supply Drive at the farmers market this Saturday! (The Gleaners is an all-volunteer program that collects food at the end of the market that would otherwise go to waste, and distributes it to low income seniors.) With your help, they can avoid buying supplies, keep the van fueled, and continue to get great food to seniors in our community.
If you have questions, you can reach the Gleaners at 503-475-4943! Donations can also be delivered to the Hollywood Senior Center.
76 or Chevron Gas Cards – any denomination – Help keep the van running!
Ziplock Freezer Bags – pint sized
Re-useable bags with handles for seniors to take things home in – these can be used ones you don’t need anymore!
Would be Really Nice!
Cloth vegetable bags for seniors to use instead of plastic bags
Paper bags with handles
Distilled Vinegar (used during berry season to prevent mold growth)
Fred Meyer/New Seasons/Whole Foods/Grocery Outlet gift cards for when we run out of supplies
Tongs (salad type in particular, but also some good for serving fruit)
Want to make a monetary donation instead and wonder what it’ll be used for?
Next year’s van insurance ($1700!)
