Trinity "Fund" Run and Walk

On Sunday, April 29, the Trinity Presbyterian Church Winger Food Pantry will host its inaugural "fund" run and walk to raise money for the pantry, with the run beginning at 8:30 a.m. in front of Trinity Presbyterian Church in U City.  Over the last 5 years, our average expenses have been more than $25,000 which has helped us provide food for over 900 metro STL families a year. The pantry's only source of funding is through donations. As you can imagine, we need all of the help we can get.

You don't need to run or walk to contribute. There is a donation only section.

f.               4-5 handling race management.  Crowds, food, etc
