Calling All Church Members… McDonough Presbyterian Church will be participating in the Annual Atlanta Hunger Walk. The Hunger Walk Run — an annual 5K walk and “fun run” begun in 1984 — is an event of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that unites our community to raise awareness and critical funds for local hunger relief.  Proceeds from the event benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank and other local nonprofit organizations that support food pantries, community kitchens, shelters and other programs for people in need of food assistance. These benefiting partner organizations help recruit participants and receive a percentage of the funds raised to support their direct hunger relief programs. Our Presbytery (Presbytery of Greater Atlanta) is a partner organization. The date for the walk is Sunday, February 25. Click the button below to sign up for the walk. If you have any questions contact Destiny WilliamsPresbyterian Women’s Rally will be Saturday, March 10th at 10:00 am. Please let PW know if you would like to set a table.
