Roadrunner Ruckers of South Texas to fundraise items for veterans’ food pantry
HARLINGEN —Enjoy a two-mile walk outside in the fresh air this weekend while donating toward a local cause.
Roadrunner Ruckers of South Texas, a nonprofit organization that promotes health and wellness for veterans, is hosting its Second Annual RucksGiving canned food drive walking event at 7:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 24.
Walkers are asked to fill their backpacks with canned goods and non-perishable items then walk from the H-E-B on Morgan Boulevard to the Veterans Drop In Center located on 1242 North 77 Sunshine Strip in Harlingen and back to H-E-B.
Last year, the nonprofit helped fill the pantry with more than $500 worth of donated items and hope to raise even more this year.
