Many of the homeless and impoverished live in the rural areas of Oceanside. Lacking transportation, they have difficulty accessing the various services that would otherwise be available to them in town. Recognizing this challenge, Manna Homeless Society (MHS) has responded and will deliver the needed provisions.
We provide emergency shelter and supplies (tents, tarps, sleeping bags, cooking stoves, etc.), groceries, personal care items and some clothing. The items in total comprise what we call a “survival pack” which is customized for the individual, couple or family. All items are provided free of charge.
We’re operative 365 days per year and cover the following areas: Nanoose Bay, Parksville, Coombs, Whiskey Creek, Qualicum Beach and Qualicum Bay.
