FALLBROOK – The shelves at the Fallbrook Food Pantry are looking pretty bare and the Thanksgiving holiday is right around the corner. Fallbrook’s eighth annual Thanksgiving Walk/Run will take place on Saturday morning, Nov. 23, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Participants will gather at the food pantry, 1042 S. Mission Road in Fallbrook, to turn in sponsor sheets and collected donations, and get “fired up for the fun run.” The route is the same as that used for the annual Crop Walk, along Main Avenue to the turn-around at the north end of Olive Avenue and back to the pantry.
It’s hoped that local residents will step forward to lend a helping hand to those in need in the community. The Fallbrook Food Pantry is looking for organizations and individuals who can help. A donation of $250 allows an individual, group, organization, or business to have their personal or business logo on the back of the event t-shirts, as well as helping to fill the shelves at the pantry.
The Food Pantry needs everyone to be a part of this great effort: schools, business teams, athletic teams, youth groups, clubs, scouts, mamas and papas, babies and pets and grandparents. Don’t be left out- it’s too important!
Sponsor forms can be picked up at several locations around town: churches, coffee shops, the Fallbrook Food Pantry, or by visiting www.fallbrookfoodpantry.org. Questions can be directed to Jean Dooley at (760) 728-5682 or the Fallbrook Food Pantry at (760) 728-7608.
