For the nine women and children staying at New Beginnings Transitional Shelter, the Manna Boxes Service Project from the nonprofit Our Children-Their Future has been a godsend.
In its first month in August, the project served 200 homes.
The goals of the project are to supplement the food shortfalls of children, their families, and seniors, disabled, sick, shut-in, veterans, and food-insecure individuals in the isolated rural communities severely impacted by this pandemic.
Desiree Tolson of New Beginnings Transitional Shelter said it has been very helpful to the shelter by providing the women and children with food, fresh fruit, and vegetables.
“They are very thankful and very blessed to receive it,” Tolson said.
