Between November 20 and December 20 partial proceeds from each gallon of propane sold from the Asheville, NC branch office of Blossman Gas, Appliance & Service benefitted MANNA Foodbank.

MANNA collects, stores, warehouses and distributes food to MANNA accredited non-profits throughout 16 counties in Western North Carolina.

David Lipe, branch manager notes, “Unfortunately, there are a lot of families in Western North Carolina that aren’t blessed with enough food to eat or money to heat their homes. The Blossman Gas family wanted to help in this way, with the ‘Heat for Hunger’ program.”

On December 27, a check was presented to MANNA for $2500.00 by David Lipe, branch manager and the staff at Blossman Gas. This donation will feed 7500 individuals a meal.
