Manor College’s food pantry, known as the Bird Feed, received a generous $1,000 donation from Truist Financial recently. 

The food pantry is located on the second floor of Mother of Perpetual Help Hall, is meant to meet the immediate needs of Manor College’s students and their families. 

The donations will go towards stocking a new refrigerator with new offerings for those in need.

The recommendation for the donation came from Truist’s Seyi Olagunju, Professional and University Banking Consultant, and Lana-Key Henry-White, Branch Leader. 

“Our goal is to build communities and we love finding opportunities to give back,” Olagunju said. “The Bird Feed lines up perfectly with our mission and we’re super excited to be able to help out.”

The donation will go towards stocking a new refrigerator in the feed with produce, grab-and-go items like yogurts, and frozen meals. 

“This will allow us to expand our offerings with a wider variety of meals and to provide some healthier options to our students,” Ali Mootz, Manor College Vice President of Student Affairs, said. “There are so many community organizations looking to help out our mission and we’re incredibly thankful to Truist for their donation.”
