4-H collects clothing to donate to Manna House

Coarsegold 4-H Club reporterNovember 12, 2013 

The Coarsegold 4-H Club Community Service Project recently collected clothing items from our members for Manna House.

Manna House is a non-profit organization in Oakhurst that helps members of our community in need of food and clothing. Manna House is 100% funded by area churches and Mountain Area residents just like you and me. Manna House welcomes cash donations along with household products, clothing, toys, and tools.

If you would like to make a donation, or volunteer to help, contact Manna House, (559) 683-6262. Our 4-H club feels it is important to be involved in the community because every person plays a role in making their community strong. Some people who need help can't always help themselves. Collecting donations and volunteering are only a couple of ways that you can help make a stronger community.
