Smart Sacks

   Smart Sacks Food Drive – Now Until May 31st, 2015
                              Erick’s Hope sponsors Manna Food’s Smart Sacks Program.                                       
 The food will be collected up until May 31st. All Food donations may be dropped off at 16700 Briardale Rd, Derwood, Md, or contact Donna at 240-994-7134 or email  for a pick up. Thank you!!!  Manna operates a backpack program called Smart Sacks  at elementary schools through which hungry children receive a backpack full of kid-friendly food on  Fridays so they have food to eat over the weekend when there are no school meals to fill empty stomachs.   

Your help in meeting Erick’s Hope’s goal of filling 600 backpacks for hungry kids would be greatly appreciated! Keep in mind that 60 schools are currently participants with more than 2320 kids being fed every single weekend. Manna Food needs 30,000 food items every month to make this happen! Donations for Manna Food can be dropped off during the week at 5510 Olney-Laytonsville Rd, Olney, or on the weekends at 16700 Briardale Rd., Derwood. Call 240-994-7134 for more information or to make other arrangements for pick up. Here is a list of needed items:
