"Thrift Shop" by MannaUGA

Big Manna on Campus is BACK.

That’s right – Manna is incredibly excited to showcase our chapters and the fabulous work they are doing, both here in the states and abroad on site! We will be updating this blog with examples of chapter awesomeness. If you host an event or your chapter volunteers for an amazing local cause, send us the deets! We would love to turn the spotlight on you and all you’re doing to make Manna all that it is!

Without further ado…here is what's happening in Athens, Georgia!

MannaUGA is off to a fantastic start this year. They are sending FOUR trips to Manna sites abroad this March. UGA chapter members will be spending their spring break at MPI sites in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ecuador. They had so much interest, they are even sending an off site trip!

In addition to the wonderful international spring they’ve got planned, MannaUGA has been busy right here in Georgia. The chapter recently hosted an event on campus called the “Thrifting Extravaganza”. A local vintage store donated clothing and accessories to the UGA chapter to aid it in raising funds for their trips abroad. The event was a staggering success, raising funds for the on-site projects the chapter has committed its spring break to achieving. Its prime location on campus also spread the word about the work MannaUGA is doing in Athens!

 Macklemore would be so proud.

We are so excited for UGA to get to site this spring. We also know that other chapters are busy spreading the word about Manna on their university’s campus. We want to hear about it! Please email our US Coordinator, Taylor Brown, at taylor.brown@mannaproject.org.
