St. Andrew’s MANNA Fund Drive – At this time when Manna Food Center’s services are needed more than ever, there’s a safe and efficient way we can support the effort: donate funds to help Manna buy food! Manna’s bulk purchase contracts make every dollar you give go much farther than the same dollar you would spend buying food at retail prices. Please be generous to help St. Andrew continue our long-standing partnership with Manna and make a big difference for hungry neighbors NOW:
- Click HERE to donate online today – specify “Manna” in the OTHER blank on our secure payment page.
- OR Make a check payable to Manna Food Center and mail to St. Andrew by June 1.
- OR Drive by and drop your check or cash with volunteers at the church’s main entrance on Friday, May 29 between 11am – 1pm.
