The First Church Community Service Center is encouraging people to sign up for their 5K Run for Homelessness and Hunger on September 9th.

Early registration is still available.

The race costs $25 per individual or $25 per team member on a team of 5 or less people.

Late registration starts August 9th, bringing the cost up to $30 per individual runner.

Organizers are giving away cash prizes to the first, second, and third place finishers.

There will also be a food packing party on September 8th, and the center does need volunteers.

The First Church Community Service Center provides food, clothing, mental health counseling, tutoring, and Bible study for those in need.

They're working to expand their services so they can help people pay their rent, car payment, or even take care of a room makeover.

The center is located behind the Rescue Mission at 1031 Putman Drive.
