On July 9th 2014, Nevada County’s local newspaper, The Union, published an article about the wonderful work that the Gold Country Gleaners are doing in Nevada County. One of our volunteers was quoted as saying that “there is no job too big or too small.” We really cannot stress this enough.
Last week we got a call from a woman named Alice. She said that she had one plum tree in her yard. “I’m 94 years old and I just don’t get on ladders any longer.” She asked if the Gold Country Gleaners would be interested in “just the one tree.”
We sent out two volunteers the next afternoon. They came back with 38 pounds of plums for the Interfaith Food Ministry.
Because we have volunteers who live and work in all corners of Nevada County, it is easy to get the right volunteers for the job. Our message: Don’t hesitate to ask!
