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.

Or, if you’d like to volunteer during race day, please see the list of volunteer opportunities below and sign up using the link below.
    Volunteers needed on race day:
a.             4-5 for registration – working on laptops to sign runners up at the site. 
b.             10-12 out on the course to make sure folks go the right way.
c.              4-5 at finish line, collecting stubs from race bibs, providing water, etc
d.             2-3 at an aid station around the middle of the course,

f.               4-5 handling race management.  Crowds, food, etc
g.             2-3 managing food and drink in the church for runners getting post food (bananas, bars, water and powerade or the like)  We will try to get discounted or donated - so if you know someone....

Yellow Dog Farms is a successful small farm in a large part due to Sara and Jamie at Fair Shares CCSA. They were willing to take a chance on a budding (pun intended) first generation Farmer. We were not a supplier to Fair Shares the very first year, but have been ever since and hopefully far into our shared futures.

I am proud to be a supplier and you should be proud to be a member of Fair Shares CCSA where we are all involved in growing and eating better quality, healthy food and supporting small, local businesses and small scale agriculture in Missouri and Illinois.
