CUMMING, Ga. — A nonprofit that provides home-cooked meals to families in need will be holding a 5K run/walk fundraiser Oct. 6 to help repair some recently donated appliances.
The event sign up is at 7 a.m. Saturday, and runners take off at 8 a.m. from Totally Running, 405 Peachtree Parkway in Cumming.
The money collected from the event will fund repair and transportation of large appliances donated to the organization from South Carolina.
Stephen Daniels founded Meals by Grace in 2010 and has since worked with Forsyth County School System social workers to help feed struggling families.
The organization delivers one hot, healthy meal along with an average 40 pounds of food products to create another three to four meals per family weekly.
"This program is really about the kids," Stephen said. "When the social workers from the schools see a need, they contact the family and ask if they'd be interested in our program."
Because of limited resources, about 22 families are currently being helped.
"With the equipment repairs and moving costs paid for by this fundraiser, we will increase that number dramatically," Daniels said.
The program currently serves about 120 individuals throughout Forsyth County.
Meals by Grace is staffed by volunteers and relies upon a variety of charitable and local business organizations that regularly offer their products and financial support.
This summer, Daniels was awarded the People of Action award by Community Connection during the annual Celebration of Lights that put nonprofits in the spotlight.
