🤝MANITOU CARES: Fall Newsletter

After an unprecedented summer apart, we are looking forward to bringing our Manitou families and staff together to help make a positive impact on those less fortunate.

See below for some of our inspiring programs and stay tuned closer to the events for more information and how to sign up! We hope many of you will join us throughout the year as we keep the spirit of camp alive through our charitable initiatives. Due to restrictions on gatherings, we are unable to have some our most popular in person events at this time like our community meals, the tough nutter and more. Please feel free to reach out if you have ideas of other virtual programs helping those in need!

Our community effort throughout the summer is only the first step. We hope you’ll take part throughout the year with our Manitou Cares programs as we support many great initiatives and charities all over the world!

EVANGEL HALL SANDWICH INITIATIVE CONTINUES

We are now able to restart our successful Evangel Hall Sandwich Initiative! We have partnered with Evangel Hall for many years to help in food insecurity for both their residents and marginalized people in the area. We are reaching out to Manitou Families to ask that one family sign up each month from October to June to take on preparing 200 sandwiches. These sandwiches will then be delivered by the family to Evangel Hall Mission to be given out to their clients.

Please email Jen at jen@manitoucamp.com to sign up!

SAVE THE DATE: VE’AHAVTA PROJECT

Mark your calendars – on Sunday, November 8th, The Ve’ahavta Project is back for it’s 2nd year and moving online!
