Manna treasurer Jim Brown got a call the other day, asking if a couple of Manna volunteers could come down to the Rotary Club of Bracebridge to pick up a donation.

He and Manna volunteer coordinator Sheila Gossen were floored to receive a cheque for $8,100.00.

“This donation will go a long way toward helping with our increasing food costs,” Jim said in expressing his gratitude to Rotarians for their generosity. “Yes, the sun did smile this morning.”

While Manna’s client list has remained fairly consistent throughout the recession, food costs have soared 25% in the last year.
