Motivated by God's love to provide basic needs and social services to empower those experiencing homelessness and poverty.
This 5k will benefit the Norristown Hospitality Center (https://runsignup.com/hospitalitycenter.org), who serves Montgomery County providing food, shelter and empowering residents and their families facing difficult situations. The Hospitality Center is a safe nurturing environment with professional staff and volunteers providing much needed care to the local community. The goal of the center is to provide immediate assistance through its services, while facilitating growth and promoting independence so patrons no longer require assistance.
The Hospitality Center receives no government funding and relies completely on the support of donors and runners like you! Please consider becoming a fundraiser and using the Sole Harvest 5K as a way to help raise money to help our neighbors in need.
