Apple Gleaning at Apple Hills Orchard


 A crew of 23 from around the area, including 10 from Whittemore Hill UMC (including little Sarah), gleaned 6 ton of apples Tuesday, October 27, at Apple Hills Orchard in Binghamton, NY. The apples were distributed to soup kitchens and hunger outreach pantries in Cortland, Norwich, Lounsbury, Sherburne, Davenport and Windsor, as well as, the Binghamton area, including CHOW. On Saturday, October 31, there were 26 students plus 2 teachers from Seton Catholic High School that gleaned another ton of apples for distribution through Catholic Charities.

Sincere appreciation is extended to Joy and Dave Johnson of Apples Hills for generously opening their orchard, so that a lot of people might have food on their table, who might not otherwise.
