Gulf Winds Donates $30,000 to Manna Food Pantries and Second Harvest of the Big Bend

Manna’s Fill the Mayflower

Every year on the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving, Manna Food Pantries hosts their Fill the Mayflower Event at Pensacola’s Cordova Mall. This event brings in thousands of dollars in donated food and supplies to help at-risk families and individuals in
our community.

Gulf Winds is proud to support Manna in their efforts and presented the organization with a $15,000 donation during the 2018 event. “The generous support from organizations like Gulf Winds allows us to better help those in need,” said Manna Executive Director, DeDe Flounlacker.
