Give N’ Gobble
Give N’ Gobble is a walk/run that takes place on Thanksgiving morning which is organized by Chairman, Cindy Aggsen. All proceeds go to the Sherwood Helping Hands food bank, which allows us to purchase the fresh food items that are given to families in need as well as supporting our backpack program.
