New grant will help battle heart disease in Picayune

A $152,000 grant was awarded today to Manna Ministries in Picayune. The grant came from the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation.

A Manna Ministries spokesman said the generous gift will allow Manna to expand its Heart 2 Heart program to other parts of Pearl River County. The goal of that program is to arm residents with the information they need to prevent cardiovascular disease.
