Gleaner Legacy Arbor gives Christmas donations to Lenawee … – The Daily Telegram

ADRIAN — A service group of Gleaner Life Insurance Society recently did its part to make the Christmas season a little bit brighter for eight Lenawee County nonprofit organizations.
Gleaner Life Insurance Society’s Legacy Arbor donated 291 pounds of food items, 127 fleece blankets and about one dozen hats and gloves as well as checks totaling $5,000 to the nonprofits in the county. 
Benefiting from the donated gifts this holiday season were ProMedica Provincial House in Adrian, Fishes and Loaves food pantry in Adrian, Associated Charities of Lenawee County, The Daily Bread of Lenawee, Community Action Agency, Surviving to Thriving domestic violence support group, Share the Warmth of Lenawee and the Imagination Library.
“We were thrilled to be able to support so many deserving organizations in the Adrian community,” Legacy Arbor President Julie Tison said in a news release. “These organizations each provide valuable support to our neighbors, and we are so thankful for all they do.”
One hundred of the fleece blankets were provided to ProMedica Provincial House as Christmas gifts for residents, the news release from Gleaner Life Insurance Society said. It was the third nursing home in three years to receive blankets purchased by the Legacy Arbor.
“These blankets are exactly what I was looking for,” Provincial House Activities Director Jennifer Ouellette said in the release.
Fishes and Loaves food pantry received 291 pounds of food and other essential items, plus a $500 check. Gleaner Life employees collected specifically requested items for two weeks at their Adrian headquarters, then delivered them on Dec. 12.
The other donations by the Gleaner arbor consisted of $1,000 to Associated Charities; $1,000 to The Daily Bread of Lenawee; $1,000 to Community Action Agency for its emergency utility fund; $500 to the Surviving to Thriving group to assist domestic violence victims; $500 plus 27 blankets, hats and gloves to Share the Warmth of Lenawee; and $500 to the Imagination Library to defray postage costs for the Lenawee Community Foundation to mail free books to eligible Lenawee County children, ages 0-5, every month.
