DUMPING will not be tolerated

Master’s Manna does not have financial resources to serve as a “dump” for the general public. There are monitoring facilities installed around the building to record improper activity and dumping. These actions will be noted and forwarded to the appropriate authority for action.

Your compassion and concern for the limitations of our financial resources is appreciated.  Your willingness to follow the donation policy means Master’s Manna is able to focus the use of all resources to provide for the needs of the community.

Your compliance is anticipated and welcome.       

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
