COVID-19 Update: April 10

April 10, 2020

Dear Friends,

We’ve made it through another week! Thanks to the support from your generous donations and the hard work of 126 volunteers, we continue to deliver a record-breaking amount of meals.

We are working hard to make sure the operational changes we are making are sustainable, and we are so grateful that our community has responded in such an incredible way. From individuals and families to local businesses and national corporations, we are truly blown away.

Our clients have been calling to pass along their thanks to the entire MANNA family, and I wanted to pass along some of their messages.

First, a message from Jesse:

“The contactless delivery is so amazing. We are quarantined because of my chemo, and it’s so dangerous for me to have contact with anyone. The deliveries are consistent, and I love being able to wave and say thank you to the driver!

The food is restaurant quality – honestly. Second to none. I am so impressed. I am so grateful.

We really are stuck. We can’t go out at all – we can’t grocery shop. It’s impossible! Grocery shopping could kill me. I’m so shocked and impressed that my wife is able to get meals as well – I can’t thank you all enough for looking out for us.”

Our sweet client Gloria turns 81 this weekend. As is MANNA tradition, we sent a cake and a card this week. She shared:

“You made my day so happy for my 81st Birthday. I just want to say thank you for the birthday card, thank you for the birthday cake. You really made my 81st Birthday really special in the midst of all of this. To all of you – stay in good health. Thank you so much for your generosity, I do really appreciate it. God bless all of you.”

If you are looking for a way to help as the weeks turn into months, I ask that you please consider 
making a donation to support our efforts during this crisis. Thank you to the entire MANNA community for your support.

From all of us – thank you and stay safe.

Best Regards,
Sue Daugherty, RDN LDN
