Tuna donations should be placed in the tuna bucket in the Fellowship Hall. After hours, you may place in the 'deliveries' bin outside the office doors. Manna can also be supported through your prayers and through monetary donations. Please make checks payable to Grace Lutheran Church and place “Manna on Meridian” on the memo line. Thank you for support of this ministry.

 

T-SHIRTS FOR MANNA. In an effort to eliminate the use of all plastic produce bags on distribution day, we will need approximately 250 men’s size large or larger gently used t-shirts every month. These will be converted into reusable bags. Please place t-shirts in Manna basket in the fellowship hall.
