NEED UPDATES for Kentucky

Despite that great success that the 2009 Community Day had, there was major shortages of seeds. Also ran out of seeds so a few hundred families was unable to get seeds of choice. Manna from Heaven is collecting seeds all thru the year for 2010 Community Day. They will accept any seeds, but they had a shortage of CORN, BEANS, TOMATO, CARROTS, LETTUCE and CUCUMBERS. So please help the community feed themselves.

They are still in need of turkeys and chickens. Turkeys will be used to build up a flock so that families will be given a male and female of a breed to raise for meat and eggs. They are looking for heritage type turkeys that breed naturally. They are also looking for brown egg layers type chicks.

Lois is still collecting for the next Back to School Rally in August. Paper is needed.

They are also putting back non-perishable Thanksgiving supplies. Turkey gravy mix, stove top stuffing, cans of beans, corn or peas, cranberry sauce, instant mashed potatoes, mac and cheese boxes and biscuit or muffin mixes. It would be a help to send gravy, mashed potato, stuffing, mac and cheese boxes, and biscuit and muffin mixes. They would be the cheapest to buy and ship. Please help because Manna from Heaven will have over 1500 families to assist this Thanksgiving.

The Mines have laid off over 500 workers. They also plan to close a mine next month. Manna from Heavens numbers are increasing at a alarming rate, (as the rest of the country.) Unfortunately, the whole area was depressed before the economic mess. Donations have dried up completely.
