The Junior Beta Club at Blandford Elementary School coordinated their annual Thanksgiving food drive for Manna House in Rincon. A total of 3,140 pounds of food was donated by Blandford students.
Students brought in items throughout the week of Oct. 26-30. Each day during that week, Beta Club members announced clues for specific items needed by Manna House. Manna House is a non-profit organization in Rincon serving all of Effingham County.
Manna House aims to help those in need by providing clothing, food and household items. In an average month, they can serve over 500 families. Manna House also will provide free school uniforms to students in need.
