HELP MANNA FILL THE MAYFLOWER FOR THANKSGIVING
Please join MANNA Food Pantries, Coastal Moving & Storage, an agent of Mayflower Transit, Cat Country 98.7 and WEAR ABC 3 Fill the Mayflower (a Mayflower tractor-trailer) with food for the hungry.
During the week of Thanksgiving, Manna will have a fully staffed drop-off site to collect food and monetary donations at Cordova Mall at 9th Avenue and Airport Blvd. MANNA will be on site the following days and times: Monday November 24 5AM - 7PM, Tuesday November 25 7AM - 7PM, and Wednesday November 26 7AM - Noon.
"We are still recovering from the April 29th flood that devastated our facility and destroyed all our food. Fill the Mayflower is always an important drive for our organization because its the single largest food drive of the year" said DeDe Flounlacker, MANNA Executive Director. "This year its more important than ever before because of our limited food resources and with so many families in need. A simple $5.00 donation will provide food for a day for someone in need and $30.00 will provide a weeks worth of food to the hungry. A donation of peanut butter equals providing protein for a week for one of our clients and is often times the only source of protein someone might have."
Donating for this event is easy! Volunteers and staff will be on hand to take food and monetary donations. Just pull up to the Mayflower truck and volunteers will take care of the rest. Every donation counts, no matter how big or small.
