and will reevaluate opening Jan 26th

January 11, 2022

Dear volunteers and SWO Gleaners' supporters,

Due to rising COVID cases and hospitalizations in our area, the SWO Gleaners will be closed for production for at least 2 weeks. At that time, we will re-evaluate the situation in our area and hopefully re-open. 

Further emails will follow with updated information.

The safety of our volunteers, staff and community remains our top priority.

Our Recent Happenings

HL Tiessen Foundation Grant

The SWO Gleaners was one of four local charities that  recently received a grant from the HL Tiessen Foundation.

The Foundation hosted a charity golf tournament earlier in the year and proceeds from that event went to the SWO Gleaners and three other local charities.

We are so grateful that we are recognized as a worthy recipient. The money will go directly to producing dehydrated soup mix and apple snacks for those in need locally and around the world.

Thank you,
HL Tiessen Foundation
