Looking for 5-10 people with a maximum of 10 people per sorting event. Most sorts last about two hours. Must be able to do a lot of lifting and bending, lifting at least 20 -25 pounds at a time.

CROS Gleanings take place on Saturday mornings from late November through most of July. Sunday mornings from mid- January to thru April. Large groups can schedule a gleaning event on a Monday or Friday with advance notice. Mango gleaning in June will have some weekday dates. The food is then distributed free of charge by the Palm Beach County Food Bank to local agencies feeding families with low incomes in our community. Contact Keith Cutshall at 561-236-8176 or email@example.com.
Each year the Outreach Committee assists local nonprofit agencies with financial grants of up to $10,000. Since 2008, grants totaling $822,900.00 has been distributed throughout the county.
From September through May there is a monthly project that directly involves our church community with a local agency asking for donations of a variety of items to help that month's charitable organization. They also host an annual reception for the church family to meet the beneficiaries of their generosity.
