Supervisor: Danielle Sarchet (434-993-3600 or Email), Kellie Matthews (434-993-3600 or Email)
Gleaning For the World (GFTW) is a Christian ministry which began in July 1998 to support and assist the mission organizations around the world. Many of our missionaries cannot afford the medical supplies, medical equipment, food and clothing necessary to influence the people to receive the Christian message. It is our belief that the missionaries deserve the best supplies we have to help them in their ministry.

At Park View Community Mission we are working to promote initiatives to serve the people of Lynchburg who need them most. We exist to provide help, healing, and hope by offering programs that meet our neighbors' physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. We do this by coming alongside those in need, engaging them in loving relationships and connecting them with the life-changing resources so that they may experience life abundantly. 

 

Specifically, we are looking for volunteers to provide servant leadership in our Food for Families program. This is a client-choice food pantry which provides neighbors with a grocery store shopping experience for supplemental groceries each month. Neighbors can choose from a variety of food products including fresh produce, eggs, milk, meats, baked goods and more, distributed in accordance with what we have available day to day.

 

Volunteers are needed:

 

Thursdays (for food setup/distribution): 10:00am-1:30pm and 1:30pm-4:30pm

 

Saturdays (for food setup/distribution): 8:30am-11:30am and 11:30am-2:30pm

 

Wednesdays anytime between 10:00am and 4:00pm

 

*We are also in need of volunteers to help clean-up on Thursdays at 4:30, Saturdays at 2:30, and Wednesdays at 4:00
