Hallie Bender (‘21) was in charge of organizing the selling and distribution of MANNA pies this year. FOCUS wants to give Hallie a special shoutout for all of her continued work throughout the pandemic. Hallie informed us: “The whole process was definitely different this year because FCS is normally a ‘pick-up site’ for pies but we weren't able to do that because of the virus. So we had every buyer choose a location to pick up their pies near their houses [e.g. Ardmore Toyota and Bryn Mawr Running Company]. Other than that, the advertising and the selling remained the same because that has been mostly virtual for the past few years, anyway.” Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, Hallie sold 194 pies, the most sold in the past couple of years. Thank you so much, Hallie!
