For more than 35 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank has been “nourishing communities by feeding hungry people.” Last year, Gleaners distributed 45 million pounds of emergency food to over 600 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties. Gleaners alleviates hunger by providing the equivalent of 97,344 meals per day to people who otherwise cannot afford the food they need.
The Marygrove College Alumni Association will participate in a community service project with Gleaners Community Food Bank at 2131 Beaufait, Detroit, MI 48207.
Join other alums in sorting and packing food items for those in need in southeastern Michigan. Wear closed toe shoes and, though not required, please feel free to bring a pair of work gloves to work in.
If you are interested in volunteering for this worthwhile project or need more information, contact Frances Simmons ’85 at (248) 546-2876 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 30, 2013.
