ABAC Students to Offer ‘Manna Drop’ for Community on Saturday

November 14, 2016

Students at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will help to make Thanksgiving dinner a hearty feast when they distribute 450 meals through the annual ABAC “Manna Drop” on Saturday.

Lane Riley, a junior from Adel, organized the event along with Madison Woodson, a senior from Jesup, and Caroline Langdale, a sophomore from Valdosta.

“It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving, and we wanted to give back to our community,” Riley said. “This is something that Dill Driscoll had been doing through the Stafford School of Business, and we wanted to keep it going.”

Riley said the event will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 18 at the Charles Spencer Elementary School in Tifton. It will continue until all the bags of food have been given away. ABAC student volunteers will help direct traffic and give away the food.

“The community has really gotten behind us on this, and we have a list of like 60 sponsors who are making this happen,” Riley said.
