Many thanks to the more than 60 volunteers from First Presbyterian Church of Anderson who came out early last Saturday morning to prepare and serve food packages to nearly 300 people who needed the asssistance.  The food was made available through a collaboration of Anderson Interfaith Ministries (AIM), Golden Harvest Food Bank and the Covenant Sunday School class of First Presbyterian Church, the sponsoring group who raised the funds to purchase the food.

Participants in this “Manna Distribution” received packages containing fresh blueberries, peaches, potatoes and butter, a well as an assortment of sodas, breads, and other non-perishable items.  AIM is proud to be able to be a part of bringing this monthly distribution to families in Anderson County communities who need it.  A distribution is held each second Saturday at a location determined by the sponsoring group.

The Manna Distribution program has become such a favorite way of serving the community that sponsors have been scheduled into the early months of 2010.  If you or your group are interested in sponsoring a future distribtution, or would like further information, please give me a call at (864) 965-9077 or email me at    angie(dot)shaw(at) aimcharity.org       afs
