Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. It is always my pleasure to bring you fun and inspiring stories within the Gleaners slice of the fight against hunger. And without a long-winded opening, I’d like to introduce you to those who made The Cupboard of Lawrence Township possible!

Meet Russell, Jason, and Molly! A great team… hear from them now.

#GivingTuesday is ONE week away


, , , , , ,

by Willie Matis

We will be giving thanks for family and friends on Thursday. We will be giving thanks for great deals at stores everywhere on Black Friday. And, we will be giving thanks for cheap online purchases while at work on Cyber Monday.

Join us in giving BACK on Tuesday!

#GivingTuesday is a chance for you to show how important the fight against hunger is to you, as well as an opportunity to DOUBLE YOUR DONATION.

Every donation given on Tuesday, December 2nd will be DOUBLED (up to the first $15,000) thanks to Sandor Development!


Normally, $1 provides 3 meals… but next Tuesday, $1 will provide 6. Add #GivingTuesday to your calendar by clicking here.

Be sure to give at gleaners.org/donate and then spread the word as to how other Hoosiers can have DOUBLE THE IMPACT on #GivingTuesday.

But don’t stop there…

Show your passion by switching your profile picture to a #GivingTuesday Social Ambassador badge.

After purchasing all of your holiday gifts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can provide the gift of food to your neighbors in need!

#MondayMotivation: Two Men and a Truck

There are many ways to give back. You can give money – $1 equals 3 meals. You can give food – every 1.2 pounds equals a meal. Or you can give time – 44 additional full-time employees would need to be hired to make up for the time given by volunteers at Gleaners.

But let me show you a creative way that Two Men and a Truck has gotten involved with helping feed hungry Hoosiers!

“The Movers Who Care” have offered to help deliver food to pantries this holiday season! This is a great budget relieving project that will allow us to get orders out to pantries who may have seen an increase in the amount of people they have served.

We can not thank Two Men and a Truck enough. So, if you see one of their trucks on the road, be careful! There may be some important cargo in the back.

Leave some words of appreciation for their help below in the comments section. I’ll be sure to send it their way!

Providing Hope for Chris’s Future

Chris is your typical 11 year old boy except for one thing… 11 year olds are normally in 5th grade, or heading into 5th grade. Chris is still in the 3rd grade… not because of bad grades or bad behavior but because of circumstances outside of his control.

Meet Chris and learn how YOU have helped.

You can help Chris receive BackSacks for an entire month by donating $20 today. Will you help?

Agency Spotlight: Hancock County Food Pantry


, , , , , ,

by Harvey Bananas and Captain Drumsticks

We are BACK! Back with another special edition of the #MondayMotivation. The fight against hunger takes a team effort, like we heard from Cindy last week.

That teamwork extends to all agency partners, the food pantries that are putting the food into the hand of those in need. Without these partners, Gleaners would simply be collecting a lot of food and storing it in our warehouse.

With that, we’d like to introduce you to one of the finest agency partners in our network, a Pantry Partner…

Hancock County Food Pantry

Have any questions about our agency partners and the network on how it works?

Any specific questions about the Hancock County Food Pantry?

Leave them in the comments section below, and we will get back to you.
