Rick Mantei has a 10-Year Commitment to Oliver Gospel Mission

Rick Mantei, has donated both monetarily and through generous food donations to Oliver Gospel Mission. In 2020, amid the turbulence of the COVID-19 pandemic, he donated 55 frozen turkeys to help feed the homeless in Columbia. Mantei has been making such donations to the mission for over 10 years, and continues to find new ways to give back to the community through such charities.

“Rick has been such a fantastic friend to those in need at Oliver Gospel for many years. He and his team live out their values of providing unprecedented support to the community both professionally and philanthropically, seeking to transform lives and futures. We are immensely grateful for Rick partnership” -said Travis McNeal.

Oliver Gospel Mission, located at 100 Taylor St. in the heart of Columbia, has been raising awareness *awareness of? Can we add that here? Or just remove*and offering services to those in need for over 130 years. It offers several programs and centers, including a four-phase recovery program for substance addiction, the Hand-Up program to help individuals find employment, an emergency center, and a women-and-children center called Toby’s Place. 

The newest program is the Oliver Gospel Roastery. This innovative program allows guests of the mission to learn job skills to set them up for success. Every purchase at the Roastery goes 100% back into Oliver Gospel’s mission to serve those in need.
