To the Editor:

The members of Philomath Community Gleaners would like to thank the Confederated Tribe of Siletz Indians for their generous grant of $2,000 to our group to buy food in November 2022.

This money will be used to buy food from Linn-Benton Food Share and other sources for very low prices.

Philomath Community Gleaners is a nonprofit community membership organization in which members work side-by-side to provide a “helping hand” not a “handout.” Members glean food and household supplies from farmers and stores. Currently, we have 441 members, including 164 children under age 17.

Thank you so much for all you have done for our group.

Ann Morgan, treasurer,
Philomath Community Gleaners
