MANNA (Metropolitan Area Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) prepares and delivers nourishing and medically-appropriate meals to individuals suffering from life-threatening illnesses such as Cancer and HIV/AIDS. They deliver over 65,000 meals per month to individuals and families in the greater Philadelphia area - completely free of charge.
Their annual Pie in the Sky fundraiser generates over $250,000 for MANNA's programs through the sale of over 8,000 pies. Pie sales begin online October 1, and continue through November 20. All pie pickups occurs on theTuesday and Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving at 40+ local partners in the greater Philadelphia region.
MANNA is currently looking for businesses who can host pie pickup during both of the days and times listed below:
- Tuesday, November 24: 3:30pm - 8:30pm
- Wednesday, November 25: 9:30am - 2:30pm
Please note that you can either choose to staff the site yourselves, or MANNA can provide volunteers to manage the pickup. They have noticed an increase in the number of individuals and families purchasing pie in the Fairmount / Brewerytown area and are hoping to find a pick-up site in our area!
The pickup location will be featured on the MANNA website, and pie buyers pick the location most convenient to their home, office, or travel plans. Other pickup locations include the Bellevue in Philadelphia, 30th Street Station, Philadelphia International Airport, Marathon Grill, IKEA, Bryn Mawr Running Company, and some other amazing local partners.
If you are interested in serving as a pickup site, please send Kevin Moran, firstname.lastname@example.org, and e-mail to express your interest and receive additional details.
