Starting November 18, 2020, Marys River Gleaners has implemented new safety precautions that align with Governor Browns 2-week freeze mandate.
1. All members and volunteers must wear a mask indoors and outdoors at the Marys River Gleaner Facility. No exceptions, if you cannot wear a mask, we ask that you stay home or have someone who is able to wear a mask pick up your food box.
2. No more than 3 individuals inside the Marys River Gleaners building at a time. These individuals must maintain a 6-foot distanced space between them.
3. All volunteers must always wear gloves while inside the building and while handling food.
4. Please take your temperature before coming for food distribution. If you have a fever, please stay home.
5. Lines formed for food pickup must maintain a 6-foot distance between individuals and no individuals can stay for longer than the time to pick up the food.
6. Individuals need to limit the time they are at the site to parking, picking up food, and leaving.
7. Anyone not complying with the safety precautions will be asked to leave.
8. Governor Brown has released a $1250 fine, and/or jail time, to anyone who does not follow the executive mandate.
9. We ask that only 1 individual come at a time to pick up the food box to help alleviate how many people we have on site. If someone needs assistance carrying a box, 1 person can assist from the individual’s household.
10. Any members who travel out of state, Marys River Gleaners asks that you self-quarantine for 14 days as recommended by the state health officials, before resuming food box pickups and volunteering.
11. Please remain respectful and responsible during this stressful time, we understand that everyone is trying their best and want to keep all of our members and volunteers safe during this stressful time and to do our part as an organization to keep the community healthy. If there are any questions, please reach out to Marys River Gleaners on Facebook or by email. We are happy to answer any and all questions.


Thank you for understanding!

I have some firewood if you are interested. call me at 541-981-0008
Are there any gleanings coming up?
I'm trying to find out if you take used pillows. I guess I should have called because I've had no luck with emailing or Facebook posts and now you are closed. Thank you, Marie
Do you take used bed pillows?
Thank you for removing the fruit from our tree today! I'm so glad the apples will be going to a better place than our compost bin!
Do you have children under the age of 18? Free Lunches can be provided to them every weekday at the Lancaster Bridge Apartment meeting room from 12pm-12:30pm. Please pm me for more details. The school district is considering ending this program at our site if our child population for need is lower than 25. That means 24 kids will lose their lunches, which could be the only meal they receive for the day. I will have flyers at Gleaners today (Sat.) for those who are interested.
I have several large maple logs ready to be split in NW Corvallis. Let me know if you would like to pick them up.
Just a idea!!! How about acknowledge all of the volunteers that have helped and done. So much incredible work to make it all happen. Thank you , you all , I so much appreciate you!
I have a bunch of canning jars. 9 X 800 ml Ball; 3 X 12 oz Ball; 2 X 12 (14?) oz Ball; 6 cross hatched type jam sized. I am trying to find a place to donate them. Would anyone in your group be interested? Or, do you know a place that would be interested? Thank you for any help.
I had a large dead tree fall down into my meadow. I don't know what type of tree, all the leaves are gone. Is anyone interested in cutting it up and taking the wood? It is time to mow the meadow and the tree needs to be removed. Reach me at: [email protected]
I want nothing to do with Mary's River Gleaners and I will be unfollowing this organization permanently
