Gleaners: Article explained a lot

Letter to the Editor Published in the Gazette Times October 25

Bennett Hall’s Oct. 11 article on gleaners in our area was one of those news items that, in a small space, says quite a lot - and it brought the answer to a question I’ve had for awhile, especially as times are increasingly difficult for many: How does "extra" food get to the right people?

It also explains (one of the) functions of the Community Services Consortium. We bike past the "CSC" all the time, and now I understand its vital place in our town. Thanks for a great article.

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
