Support TEAM OLD FIRST in the Walk+Run Against Hunger (Sat., 04.11 @ 9 a.m.)

On April 12, TEAM OLD FIRST will leave the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and walk 5K along the Schuylkill River to support hunger relief within our community.

We gather near the statue in the traffic circle in front of the Art Museum about 8:30 a.m., and the walk begins at 9 a.m.

Who’s on TEAM OLD FIRST? Well, anyone who wants to walk and raise money to combat hunger, starting right here at our church. We focus on inviting the middle school youth, but if you don’t fall into that demographic, but want to participate, you are invited too.

It would be great to have some members from our Outreach Standing Leadership Group. And some people who volunteer on Saturdays– both Old Firsters and folks from the other communities who are so important to this ministry. Perhaps we could get some of the service campers who have served at the cupboard in the past year? And maybe we could invite some of the people who we serve to join us…

The Walk+Run Against Hunger supports more than 100 food pantries, soup kitchens and hunger-relief agencies in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey. All the pledges we receive will support hunger relief, and 90% of them come right back to our own Saturday Morning Cupboard and Breakfast.

If you are interested in joining the Team, please speak with Yiwola A., or call the church office (215)922-4566 for details.
