Manna Envelope Campaign
Keep an eye open for a pre-addressed envelope for Manna scheduled to arrive in the next few weeks in your Examiner and Weekender. In addition to receiving food donations, The Manna Food relies upon monetary donations to purchase required food items. Some send in a cheque right away, while others tuck the envelopes away to use later in the year. We are grateful for your contribution to those in our community who need help putting food on the table.
