Join Gleaners Amplifiers to Help the Community
Aug 05, 2013 06:03AM
Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana recently introduced the Gleaners Amplifiers program, a group of engaged people looking to put a stop to hunger in central and southeastern Indiana and beyond. The organization is looking for help in spreading the awareness of hunger across Indiana, and is seeking a 12-month commitment from individuals to partner with them.
As an Amplifier, the Gleaners’ message would be shared in several ways throughout the year. Some of the opportunities include using personal social media networks to share information, and attending two to three public events on behalf of Gleaners (to staff a booth and answer general questions). In addition, individuals would organize a volunteer group to assist in the Gleaners warehouse or Community Cupboard at least once during the year.
There are 319,450 Hoosiers in the Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana’s 21-county service area facing food insecurity—that’s more than 15 percent of the population in these counties.
