Dear editor, 

The Liberty County Manna House has been challenged this year to meet a significant increase of people needing food. Each month we have provided food to more than 1,000 people, including children and low-income seniors.  We are thankful for those who've helped us year after year, and for the new donors this year. This week is particularly challenging, as we help needy people balancing budgets and stretching dollars to experience the traditional American Thanksgiving dinner.

Our plan for Thanksgiving is to distribute 250 baskets (to people who need them) per day on Monday and Tuesday beginning at 8 a.m. It is a first come first serve distribution. On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, we will serve a traditional dinner from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the soup kitchen. We really need the community to give turkeys, hams, stuffing, canned vegetables, canned yams, gravy packets, chicken broth, cake mix and frosting, and drinks to help meet the need.

The Manna House has been in the heart of Hinesville for many years and continues to serve the food needs of children and adults through the most difficult times. Anyone can donate in the spirit of Thanksgiving now and any time. We appreciate you. We are believing in the generosity of the public to get the help we need in the coming months to meet the growing needs for food. 

Thanksgiving donations are being received during Manna House operating hours Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-noon, including the Soup Kitchen from 4:30 – 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-noon.

The Manna House is a 501c3 nonprofit, would you please consider making it one of your charities for monthly and/or year-end giving? Thank you for supporting.
