. . . Manna for Malawi Event Seeks
Nobody’s called yet but they’re about to, to ask if you would consider helping out at this year’s Manna for Malawi fundraiser, from 4-8pm on June 23rd at the Woodtick Inn in Cuyuna. When they do and you don’t have a volunteer lime green tee-shirt yet, here’s how to get one. The shirts we’re using are produced by The Shirt Shop in Crosby. Call the shop at 545-0220 or drop in the office in the Spalding House Building downtown at 5 West Main Street. Cost for the shirts are $18 for sizes small through extra-large. Size 2X is $3 more, size 5X is $5 more. Shirts should be ordered by the end of May to make sure its ready for the event. The woman’s cut shirt is in a lighter weight shirt and will have a scoop neck. The shirts are the same ones we used last year, so if you helped last year, you’re all set.
The Malawi orphans thank you for volunteering.
. . . Manna for Malawi Silent Auction Items Needed
Our fifth annual Manna for Malawi fund raiser is June 23rd this year. Did you know the Johnny Holm Band will be playing? Is there something you could donate for the silent auction? You could donate a new (but never used) item. Such as a gift that didn’t fit or just wasn’t something you could use. You could donate a craft item that you made with wood, textile, jewelry, pictures, décor or plants. When you want to bring some-thing in to donate, drop it at the office and fill out a Silent Auction Item Sheet that shows the donor, descrip-tion and value. If you have questions, call or email me.
The Johnny Holm Band will perform at this year’s Manna for Malawi fund raiser on Sunday, June 23rd at the Woodtick in Cuyuna, Minnesota. The regional band has been attracting audiences for nearly 40 years in the United States, primarily in the five-state area. Holm began his musical journey just down the road from Cuyuna in Brainerd. Manna for Malawi 2019 runs from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. In addition to music, those who attend get to eat Italian food from Maucieri’s while they’re checking out the silent auction items. Charge for the event is a free will offering.
Pastor Paul Mattson said his heart was touched as he saw first hand what Manna for Malawi has done and continues to do. Malawi is in southeastern Africa, the poorest nation in the world. Average income is less than $2 a day.
“When we were invited to help the mission 13 years ago, volunteers fed 400 hundred, once a week. Now, feeding takes place six days a week and up to a thousand African orphans get their only meal of the day,” Mattson added. Last year’s event raised more than $35,000 to help the organization buy a tractor for the farm bought the year before. Money raised this year will go for the feeding program, farm equipment, and education for orphan children.
Manna for Malawi is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and supports the Malawi Orphan Care Project. For more information, check us out on the web at www.malawiorphancareproject.org.
