They have 30 different traditional project sites, as well as independent or online sites for those who aren’t comfortable getting out just yet.

“Manna jobs, which are free food distributions, community beautification and litter pickups. We also have a couple other select sites. Things like making toiletry kits, lawn brigade. This year, we are doing Manna drops in each city in Thomas County," said Kiminas.
