Giving Thanks at the Glean League Appreciation Dinner
Jun 11, 2018 by Bekah Worster

Hey everyone!

 

You may have heard of Glean League. If you follow our blog or social media, there have been mentions of our Glean League and asks for people to join. So what is it exactly? Glean League is a monthly donor membership. It is an investment in our mission and trust in our vision. It is one of the best ways to show your support to GleanKY. We owe so much appreciation to our Glean League members. When I first started in February, we had 16 Glean League members. The number was small, but the impact was great!

 

 

Throughout the past few months, I have met several supporters and have realized they are just as invested in GleanKY as the staff. I set a goal to reach 50 Glean League members before the end of the year. We are currently at 22! Our Glean League members bring in an annual income of over $10,000!

 

  • That’s 4 partnerships with recipient sites.
  • That’s more than 20 weeks with one recipient site.
  • That supports the all of the gleaning deliveries in Madison County!

 

 

As a way to say thank you for their commitment, we threw the very first Glean League Appreciation Dinner on June 7. Fida’s Caribbean donated sliders, red beans and rice, and fried plantains. Oh my goodness, was it good! I believe everyone got seconds and enjoyed every bite.

 

 

We played food themed team trivia and gave out door prizes. There was even a fun photo booth that transported us in to the Caribbean!

 

 

It was a great night and I am so grateful for each one of our Glean League Members!

 

Don’t miss out on the dinner next year. Make an investment in your community and donate monthly to GleanKY. Many of our members donate just $10 a month, several donate more. Come join the Glean League and help us succeed in our mission. You may join here.
