On Wednesday, April 6, from 8am until 8pm, Gleaning For The World is hosting their first-ever Day of Giving.

Due to the generosity of donors, Gleaning For The World has an exciting $50,000 matching challenge in place for this one-day fundraiser.

Every dollar donated during this Day of Giving will be instantly doubled while the challenge lasts!

The fundraising goal is to match the $50,000 challenge, raising a total of $100,000 for Gleaning For The World in just 12 hours.

Gleaning For The World is known for their work in disaster relief all across the nation, but they are also known for helping neighbors in need right here in central Virginia – through the distribution of foods, hygiene items, pet supplies and more to their 40+ partners in this region, who then pass on the foods and supplies to those needing a hand up.

The funds raised on this one-day Day of Giving will be used to help cover costs for Gleaning’s programs and services.

“We hope our supporters will once again show up with their generosity, this time, not for a specific disaster or event, but to show they believe in the work being done in and through Gleaning For The World,” Gleaning’s president, Jeane Smiley-Mason said.

Visit to donate online through Gleaning’s secure donation page or through PayPal.

Additionally, anyone wishing to donate in person may do so in two locations:

At Sam’s Club on Wards Road in Lynchburg between 10am and 6pm

At Gleaning For The World headquarters, located at 7539 Stage Road, Concord, VA between 8am and 8pm, on Wednesday, April 6, only.

The public is invited to visit from 8am until 8pm for a tour of the facility.
