You can help the fight against hunger! Every dollar contributed to these foods banks is worth several times its value as part of larger bulk purchases. The operating costs of these facilities is very high, and the needs of so many in our community are greater each year.
We are grateful for your participation as a runner/walker or sponsor during our event – but please remember the pressing need for your support year-round! These organizations are happy to receive your support or volunteer time.
