MANNA, a Philadelphia non-profit that nourishes seriously ill patients and their families, needs our help to supply Thanksgiving meals to their clients. By buying a pie for $30, you can fund an entire Thanksgiving meal for a family. Buy pies for your own Thanksgiving meal or donate them to a client. Flavors available include: Pumpkin, Apple, Pecan, Sweet Potato, and their famous cheesecake Sky Pie. Annie Roberts is a pie selling representative, and you can order through her page by clicking here. You will be prompted to choose a pick up location and there are multiple in our area.* Pick up is on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Online orders are due Nov. 16!
MANNA is also in need of volunteer delivery drivers for Thanksgiving morning. How it operates is that meals are picked up from their office 420 N. 20th St. Phila. PA 19130 between 9:45-11:45am. Drivers are given 3-4 stops on a delivery route that will take roughly 1-1 ½ hours to complete. Let Margaret know if you are interested in being a driver. It is a wonderful activity to do as a family or with a group of people or a chance for some reflective time alone in your car on Thanksgiving morning. You will also meet some amazing people on your route. You can also contact MANNA directly to volunteer by emailing Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her at (215) 496-2662 x100.
*Friends’ Central School is a pick-up location. If you would like to have your pies delivered there, let us know. Annie or Margaret will pick them up for you and you can arrange to get them from us.
