First Run 5K/10K Charity Partner
We are very excited to announce we will be partnering with Debbie’s Treasure Chest for this year’s First Run 5K & 10K in which we will be hosting an athletic clothing drive at the event! Debbie’s Treasure Chest is a federally approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2007. The organization provides aid and support for disadvantaged and at-risk families in the Merrimack Valley and surrounding areas. This winter season, Debbie’s Treasure Chest is looking for winter & athletic clothing donations to help those in need. We are hoping with nearly 1,000 participants and spectators at this event, we can collect enough clothing to keep many community members warm and active!
We are looking for athletic shorts, shirts, winter coats, sweatshirts, jackets, sweatpants, etc. to be donated at the event. Any and all sizes are welcomed and encouraged! As a general rule of thumb, new or gently used clothing will be accepted. While we appreciate the generosity, we cannot accept shoes at this drive.
