Turkey Trot 5K Walk/Run
This ministry was started in 2007 and has grown to include 800 paprticiapants per year - walking, running, and donating to a good cause! In lieu of registration fees participants are asked to donate non-perishable goods for donation to the Alpha Center Food Pantry. We collect nearly 4 tons of food each year! T Shirts and other fundraising also create funds to donate to Alpha for the purchase of additional food.
Volunteers are needed to help with race day activities.
Children need to be at school on Monday morning with a full stomach and ready to concentrate and study. For school staff who knows the signs, it's not hard to pick out hungry students. They are the ones who empty their lunch trays in a flash. It's worse when there's a weekend and children don't get enough to eat for over 48 hours.
This ministry gives students that are food-insecure meal supplements for their weekend food needs.The weekend meals are distributed to 5 local elementary schools.
Volunteers are needed to purchase the foods, stock and sort the meal bags, and delivery to the schools.
