We are grateful for the following testimonial that tells us we are doing a good thing for our community and that our hard work pays off tenfold:

This is Connie Seely from McCracken Rest Home in Waynesville; We have been so fortunate to be receivers of the seasonal gleans! Our residents rave over the produce that you have been so generous to deliver! A while back we received an email asking for volunteers to pick up gleans on Saturdays for delivery; we have had a great response from our staff, several would like to volunteer; please let me know how we can become established to join your volunteer team!

If you would like to participate with the gleaners, please go to our website and complete the member registration form. Hope to see you in the fields!

Tate C. Addis Benefit Concert

Enjoy these two snippets from the benefit concert performed by internationally known organist, Tate C. Addis. Mr Addis and his lovely wife, Laura Larsen Addis, were very generous in offering a concert to benefit the Haywood Gleaners and our cause. Mrs. Addis is the official “page turner.”
