Peace Country Gleaners Society (PCGS) operates completely with volunteers. Because the board is reimbursed only for direct expenses on board business all donations go directly to our operating costs.
All the planting, harvesting, and processing is done by a volunteer management committee as well as many volunteers throughout the year. Once the products are dehydrated they are currently shipped to a gleaner society in BC to be included in soup mixes prepared and shipped to the hungry people in many countries and distributed by reputable aid organizations to ensure the delivery directly to the people in need.
One of he benefits of PCGS to La Crete and area is the opportunity for many seniors (and younger people as well) to have a place where they can volunteer their time to help in the whole process. This is also a wonderful social time for all involved! In the last number of years we have had hundreds of volunteers and the most in one day was over 150!
To date we have received only one small municipal government grant so we are completely dependent on your donations to pay for all of our expenses. For fundraising, volunteers have prepared and served delicious suppers and charity auctions have also been held at the suppers. Financial support for PCGS from local individuals and businesses has been fantastic!
