Volunteers glean fruit for needy

This is for all my friends and neighbors. Do you have a few fruit trees in your backyard? You watch them ripen and you worry you may have to pick them, eat some and give the rest away. Otherwise they will fall to the ground and just lay there until they rot. Not to fear! There is a group of volunteers, a modern group of “gleaners,” who will come out when called and cart them away to the Food Bank or to needy families. Such a deal! For more information, call (619) 318-3423.
