$810 For A Very Special Hat

The Season for giving means more than just food for the Holiday’s for Pensacola’s Manna Food Bank. CatCountry 98 7 raised $810.00 for Pensacola’s Manna Food Bank.

Country artists helped out by autographing a special hat that was put on the eBay auction website this week. The auction ended Friday at 10:00 am. 100% of proceeds from the auction will be presented to Manna Food Bank before Christmas. The winning bidder was John Peacock from Pensacola, FL.

This year the Manna Food Bank has had to dip into its reserves more than it expected. While they expect to meet the needs of the hungry in Pensacola this Christmas Season, it might be a hard Spring. Tim Evans, the Director of the Manna Food Bank says “People forget we are serving the needs of Pensacola 365 days a year. For us the tough months are after the Holidays, when people’s awareness goes down.”

Manna Food Bank is a private, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to alleviating hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties of northwest Florida.
