Manna House Food Pantry and Thrift Store celebrated National Volunteer Week Hawaiian style, with a luau luncheon for its volunteers.

The event was held at First Baptist Church of Rincon and was decorated with Hawaiian-themed items.  Everyone participated by wearing tropical shirts, leis and hats. Each volunteer was given tokens of appreciation for their hard work.

Some were given special recognition for reaching milestones of over 1,000 volunteer hours. This past year Manna House volunteers and groups clocked in over 42,000 hours.

Manna House has seen an increase of people seeking assistance. In March, it served 432 families with over 1,232 bags of food totaling over 60,000 pounds given away.  Manna House is located at 1210 Patriot Dr. Rincon, across from the YMCA.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Lisa Bush at 826-2037 or (912) 665-1985.
