Dear Supporter,
Today is an extra special day in the DMV. Not only are we celebrating the 8th year of #DoMore24 , in partnership with the United Way of the National Capital Area, but this year we are also highlighting a new day of giving, #GivingTuesdayNOW. Lots of hash tags, we know... the overall inspiration is to take today to come together as a community & support the nonprofits we care about.

You have demonstrated your dedication to fighting hunger & feeding hope across Montgomery County through your support of Manna Food Center. Through gifts of time, talent and treasure you have bolstered our critical mission.

Now during this time of particular economic and public health stress, we wanted to share the important work that is being done and ask you to consider making a gift today . Your online donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 thanks to a generous local family.

If you're part of the wonderful group of supporters who has given recently, thank you! We hope this update helps you know how much your dollars have made a difference for struggling families in our community.
Volunteer
What do 679 of our neighbors have in common? They've stepped up in this time of uncertainty to make their skills available for volunteer serve. Our community is AMAZING!
