WARRENSBURG — Manna Harvest Inc. Jeremiah 29:11 Project hosted a community-wide COVID-19 relief give away Saturday, July 25, at the Ridgeview Elementary School parking lot.

Manna Harvest stated 49 pallets of goods, an estimated value of over $150,000, were distributed to approximately 400 individuals.

Items offered included shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, vitamins, over-the-counter medicines, dishes, cups, home décor, curtains, curtain rods and blinds, toys, clothing and accessories, baby supplies and approximately 100 bicycles.

All items were free for attendees.

Manna Harvest partnered with Good360 to provide goods to local nonprofit agencies to help their clientele.

Manna Harvest Pastor Terrence Moody said the goal of the event was to serve those in Johnson County who had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Travis Kiral of Tip Top Towing hauled the forklift to the school and unloaded five truckloads of pallets.

Forty-nine volunteers assisted with setting up the event, handing out items and tearing down the event.

Manna Harvest stated only three pallets of goods were taken back to the warehouse after the event's conclusion.

Manna Harvest is looking into having another give away in late fall.
