Charity Partner

We are very exited to partner with Food For Hope for the Pirates Run for Booty!  Food for Hope delivers food to local children in Adams County. For this race you have two ways to help out. You can do an online  DONATION or bring in-kind food donations for a chance to win a raffle prize! Either way you choose to help out your generous donations go directly to LOCAL Adams County children.  Food for Hope programs include:

Weekend Food Bags: Every week, volunteers meet to put together a bag full of nutritious food for each child enrolled in our elementary school program.  Bags include a vegetable (canned or fresh), a fruit (canned or fresh), whole grains, protein items, and 2 breakfasts/snacks. Volunteers deliver bags to participating schools on Thursday of each week, to be distributed before they leave for the weekend.

School Fuel: Students need snacks at school to maintain focus, keep their energy up, and find success in their classes. Many teachers have reported to us that they use personal finances to purchase extra snacks for their students who are not able to bring one from home. We created this program to provide school day snacks, and alleviate the financial burden from teachers who are providing this on their own.

NEW IN 2022:  We are now supporting 8 In School Food Banks in Adams County!


We are proud to partner with Sneakers4Funds! When you donate your gently used or new athletic shoes, a donation is made to our ongoing charity partner, Growing Home! 

Bring your shoes to Advanced Packet Pick Up or on Race day! Click here for more info!
