A Mission for Manna: CamaPlan Uses Social Media to Raise Money for Soup Kitchen

Manna on Main Street’s Florence Nightingale Challenge kicked off May 1st, with self-directed IRA administrator CamaPlan participating with other local businesses. The Challenge is a friendly competition fundraiser that strives to raise money and awareness to help neighbors in need. The mission of Manna on Main Street is to end hunger in the North Penn region through their soup kitchen, food pantry, emergency financial aid, and community education programs.

The Florence Nightingale Challenge is one of Manna on Main Street’s signature annual fundraiser events. Local businesses compete to see who can raise the most money to support this worthy cause. CamaPlan is excited to participate in the Challenge this year. They will donate $1 to Manna on Main Street for every new “like” received on their Facebook page between May 1, 2013 and September 1, 2013. CamaPlan’s Facebook fundraiser campaign is an easy way for others to support the important work done by Manna on Main Street. At no cost to the individual, they can trigger a donation to the Florence Nightingale Challenge, helping to provide financial support for the programs that served over 900 North Penn families last year.

Manna on Main Street was formed in a church basement in 1981, and today has grown to a dedicated team of 10 employees and over 1500 volunteers. They fill a void in the North Penn area, serving families and individuals from all walks of life – primarily the working poor, the recently unemployed, and those on fixed incomes. Manna on Main Street’s food pantry and soup kitchen provided over 84 tons of food to the hungry last year. They also offer emergency financial aid, counseling, referrals, and community outreach to help eliminate hunger and meet urgent needs. Less than 2% of Manna on Main Street’s budget is funded by government monies; the organization is supported by the tremendous generosity of local businesses, schools, civic and faith-based organization, and individuals. Fundraiser events like the Florence Nightingale Challenge play a key role in meeting Manna on Main Street’s annual funding goals so that they can continue to serve the community.
