Grade A supporters!
This year marked a record apple harvest at the King Orchard! Allen and Sheree King have once again donated the apples from their orchard to MANNA – and the MANNA family stepped up to do the work at harvest time.
This year we were able to distribute 203,025 lbs. of apples!
Thanks to the Kings for their generous donation. Thanks to all of the families and friends from far and wide of all walks of life that come together to pick apples. Thanks to all of those volunteers who sorted, bagged and delivered apples to the eager hands of our families in need all over Western North Carolina.
Thanks to the organizations and businesses that made giving back to the community a priority for your group.
