Gleaning For The World

On July 13, 2022, RAA picked up 1935 lbs of dog and cat food from the Gleaning for the World organization for our Pet Food Pantry. Through their program, Gleaning Relief for Pets, they distributed 240,000 lbs of food and supplies to 38 shelters and animal welfare organizations in the Commonwealth of Virginia during 2020/2021. RAA is thrilled to become a new partner with such an amazing agency.

Food and supplies are donated from generous donors to, and then delivered to Gleaning’s warehouse for distribution to qualified GOODS recipients for a minimal handling fee.
