HINESVILLE — The Liberty County Manna House is teaming up with America’s Second Harvest for a Truck to Trunk emergency food giveaway in Hinesville Thursday, 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
“These are critical times, and l feel a special obligation to help those who cannot help themselves,” said Manna House Executive Director Katrina Deason.
As constant news reports paint an unprecedented time of public emergency, Rev. Deason said an extra issue of groceries is necessary.
As Monday’s Today Show aired on NBC, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams warned that the coronavirus outbreak will worsen this week and said that people across the country are not taking the threat seriously enough.
“This may be a tough week but we are not panicking,” Rev. Deason said. “We have low income seniors and citizens who could not “buy out” the stores and stock up groceries because they do not have the money, so we need to undergird them.”
The drive through mobile food bank event will issue 500 food boxes to people.
“They won’t get out of their automobiles, just open the trunk and drive through. Thanks to America’s Second Harvest we will provide an extra issue of groceries to needy families in Liberty County,” Deason said.
The Manna House has been temporarily operating out of 306 W. Memorial Drive for several months until the new facility is constructed. For information call 912-368-3660, or visit www. Libertycountymannahouse.org
