Thanksgiving Walk to End Hunger Food Drive at MOA

By November 23, 2008

Follow me on:

This Thanksgiving is set to be an extra tough one for many people across the Twin Cities. Dismal economic times mean that more children go to bed hungry, and more families can't afford to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Walk to End Hunger is a 5K walk on the morning of Thanksgiving Day at the Mall of America, organized by a collaboration of hunger relief agencies in the Twin Cities. Participants can walk as an individual, as a family, or in a group, and raise money from sponsorship from friends and family.

As well as the 5K walk, the Mall of America is also holding a food drive. Non-perishable food items can be donated at the north entrance of Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America, now until Thanksgiving Day.

All food donations, and money raised, will go to one of ten local agencies who provide hunger relief and other services to needy families in the Twin Cities metro area.

Good day!!! Happy Thanksgiving! . :) :) :)
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, when it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Unsurprisingly, all these stories are mostly about friends and family, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. … . ===
