The Heart and Hand House and the Belington Presbyterian Church received $3,600 in donations from Barbour Community Health Association’s, Belington Wellness Center’s 10th Annual Turkey Trot event.  The Turkey Trot raised $1,800 and BCHA matched the donations. Community sponsors and volunteers join together each year to organize the annual event to help raise funds for the two organization’s community efforts.

Donations from the event will be used to help the two local organizations feed roughly 400 families this Thanksgiving Day. The Belington Presbyterian Church has been hosting Thanksgiving Day dinners since 1995, with the help of 20-25 volunteers who deliver and dish out the food.

Proceeds will also go toward the Heart and Hand House’s food pantry program that is offered to those in need within the community.

Eighty-four participants ran or walked during this event that was scheduled on Nov. 6.

Next year’s Turkey Trot is scheduled for Nov. 5, 2022.
