Holiday Charity Contest Winner: Chastity Davenport & The Manna House!

The winner of our 2010 Holiday Charity Contest is Chastity Davenport of Huntsville, AL. Chastity chose the Manna House as her charity.

Chastity's winning entry: "My vote would be for the Manna House located on South Parkway next door to The Rock church. Manna House is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to caring for the needs of the poor and hungry of the Tennessee Valley (and beyond) as a cooperative effort that networks churches, businesses and concerned individuals. We understand that “man shall not live by bread alone,” therefore, we address the spiritual needs of individuals and families and seek to identify the underlying causes of poverty. I have been a part of The Manna House personally and truly believe that on a daily basis they improve the lives of many within our community. Please choose them as the winner not just for the money but also for the recognition of how others can donate money or time to be a part of this wonderful organization. We can work together to better our community and save lives."

Manna House is a collective endeavor of compassionate, caring people. To address the ongoing, ever-changing needs of the Tennessee Valley, it truly embraces T.E.A.M. work: (Together Everyone Achieves More.) Combined compassion creates a synergy that accomplishes more as a team than as an individual. There’s a place for YOU at Manna House.

The Manna House Food Distribution Center operates under the auspices of The Rock Urban Outreach Center, an independent entity for community transformation. It does not discriminate based on race, religion, ethnicity, or social status. We networks with H.A.P., a clearing house organization, to verify the accuracy of data submitted from applicants. Manna House also works with Angel Food, a program that provides assistance to families that need supplemental resources on a monthly basis.

Jeff Benton Homes is proud to be able to help out such a wonderful organization.
