Gleaners needed

Olympic Gleaners is looking for help with this season's gleaning activities.

If your fruit tree still has fruit, they want to collect it. If you have other crops to be gleaned, ditto. You even can help ensure the food is delivered to those who need it.

Olympic Gleaners also needs volunteers to help pick the fruit and veggies. It's all part of the all-volunteer effort, which is coordinated by Olympic Community Action Programs.

As organizers say, without proper organization and helping hands, "We risk leaving a lot of food unharvested which could be shared with those in need throughout our community."

Call OlyCAP at 452-4726, ext. 6282.
