Community Billboard will be a regular feature in Highlights to inform us of the specific, real, and desperate needs of our mission partners. While agencies such as ABCCM and MANNA encourage and welcome our participation quarterly in projects for 8-10 people, often the greater need is for one person to help with a specific task like filing, organizing, or setting up computers. Often these jobs can be done at the volunteer’s convenience. Take a look at the Community Billboard for MANNA Food Bank.
