Tariq Farid is WOWED by Master’s Manna

We at Master’s Manna are humbled by the post placed on Tariq Farid’s Facebook page. To know that there are individuals who recognize the value of the services provided by Master’s Manna, the incredible volunteer base and scope of need in this local community provides the impetus for us to continue to serve. Thank you, Tariq for your faith in our mission and those fulfilling the needs… investors and volunteers alike!! Please take a moment to read the following:


It is an easy accomplishment to donate a few dollars. It is an entirely different matter to make an investment.  An investment is a commitment, as of time or support. Investments provide a return. Investments are carefully thought out and implemented. We recognize that our “Investors” sacrifice time, talents and resources for which we are grateful. It is because of our “investors” that we can fulfill our mission to provide basic unmet human needs to our neighbors. PLEASE CONSIDER BECOMING AN “INVESTOR”.
