Welcome, Benny! Gleaner's New Mascot

What’s big, soft and full of pride for Gleaner? Gleaner’s new mascot, Benny the Lion! Benny debuted at Gleaner’s annual Flag Day celebration on June 14. Benny’s name is short for Benevolence, and he will be teaching kids of all ages the importance of helping others. We'll share more about Benny in the months to come.
