The Gleaners is a Christian charity founded in 1999 with the purpose of making dried soup mix and apple snacks for the needy. 
On Wednesday and Thursday mornings we will arrive at The Gleaners by 8am.  Instructions will be given and we will start work by 8:30am.  The donated vegetables are chopped, cut and diced and placed onto pans that will go into the drying racks for 10 hours.  The dried vegetables are then ready to be made into soup mix.  About 14 million meals are shipped around the world every year!

Border Crossing Requirements:
As you know, border crossings in and out of the United States have become more stringent in the last few years.  You MUST have an enhanced driver's license or passport.  Border crossings can be long and tedious.  Please exhibit patience.

Please be sure to have your insurance card and other important information with you. It would be wise to have on your person your doctor's phone number and emergency contact information. 

The afternoons are for rest and relaxtion. The hotel has two swimming pools and a health spa.  Ricky's Country Restaurant (located at the hotel) has a little gift shop and is a delightful place to eat.
