We are excited to share that registration will open for Manna from Heaven on November 1, 2022! This initiative provides $50 grocery store gift cards for autistic persons in need of food. We are so thankful for our amazing donors who have made Manna from Heaven possible!

You might be wondering where the name, Manna from Heaven, comes from. The Bible describes it in Exodus 16. God provided manna for the Israelites when they were hungry and in need. Today, the expression refers to unexpected help or assistance that comes at a time when needed the most. We desire for this initiative to be a blessing for those in need!
