TUALATIN VALLEY GLEANERS
TOGETHER WE ARE CREATING AND PROMOTING POSITIVE UPLIFTING
CHANGE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO FOLLOW AND SUCCEED!
is a time old tradition that provides a means of opportunity to share in the bounty of harvest. The Tualatin Valley Gleaners continues to glean in traditional means, but has also diversified their gleaning efforts to accommodate for the urban setting and modern lifestyles.
All of this is possible due to the wonderful efforts of the community and members working together to make sure the basic principal of food for all - is a not just a motto, but a reality.
We thank everyone that has been so generous with their donations of time and goods.
Trucks, Mini-Van's and Trailers OH MY!
Did you know that each week our low-income members use their personal vehicles to haul up to 10,000lbs of food for distribution.
We have one company van that is our only heavy hauler thanks to one of our generous donors.
But we are in need of a few more.
Our goal is not to utilize low-income members vehicles to haul food. The stress and weight is hard on everything mechanical and often times the families can not afford repairs if the vehicle breaks down.
We are in need of vehicle donations and / or free mechanic services.
Gift certificates for tire replacement is also a helpful gift. These donations are fully tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
Wish List and Continuing Needs of the Tualatin Valley Gleaners
A scholarship partner, sponsors one or more families per month. This partnership ensures the families that apply and qualify for hardship of membership dues are given full scholarships for monthly supplemental food resources. Many families that are in great need are unable to pay the required monthly dues. The TVG has never turned anyone away for a lack of payment. In keeping with this practice, the TVG monthly budget suffers greatly. By becoming a Scholarship Partner you will be helping to ensure that we can continue this humanitarian effort of supplying help to families in need. Your pledge of $15.00 per month or more provides at least one month scholarship to families in crisis.
This donation is fully tax deductible and we can supply you with a monthly or quarterly tax receipt. Your name will also be included on our website under Scholarship Partner and you will receive a monthly newsletter, keeping you up to date on all the Tualatin Valley Gleaners current activities.
