The Manski Family Foundation, a private philanthropic organization, is
dedicated to giving back to the Tri-City community. In an effort to combat
hunger during the holiday season, the Manski Family Foundation has generously
donated $3,300 to The Salvation Army Tri-City Corps Joe K. Anderson Community
Center to purchase 200 turkeys for Thanksgiving food baskets to be distributed
to families in need.
Chris Manski, of the Manski Family Foundation, states, “Being able to assist
others that need a helping hand is very rewarding to my wife and I as well as
our four adult children who have chosen professions of serving and giving back
to the community in their jobs.”
The Salvation Army, which is the largest direct provider of social services in Illinois, is excited to accept this donation in order to provide Thanksgiving food baskets that will serve approximately 1600 individuals this year.
Lt. Betsy Clark, commanding officer for The Salvation Army Tri-City Corps
Joe K. Anderson Community Center states, "It's because of people like the
Manski Family that The Salvation Army is able to be so effective in meeting
people's needs. We are so grateful to have generous people in our
community that truly care about those in need."
To combat hunger during the holiday season, as well as year-round, The Salvation Army Tri-City Corps Joe K. Anderson Community Center provides food to families in need that are income qualified. During the holiday season, financial donations from the community toward the purchase of turkeys at Thanksgiving or food gift cards at Christmas are truly appreciated. To provide a financial contribution, please mail to or drop off donations to The Salvation Army Tri-City Corps, 1710 S. 7th Ave, St. Charles IL 60174.
