Choose A Day

Pick your favorite glean on the calendar. Details about each glean are shown below the calendar. We send weekly emails to notify of gleaning opportunities but we may post small gleans on the calendar without advertising. Read and check Terms of Participation and the Release, then you can 'Signup for this glean' to be added to the roster. After signup, you'll see details including the address of the glean - you'll receive an email with the same information and a cancellation link. If you lose the email, you can have it re-sent on MyPage under Volunteers.

Need to Cancel?

The email you received includes a link where you can cancel so someone else can take your spot. Your courtesy will help us schedule the right number of volunteers. Thank you.
