Friends of Southborough Recreation asked me to share their news. Thanks to those who registered for and sponsored the annual Thanksgiving Day run, the Southborough Food Pantry received a $4,000 donation.

Here is the announcement:

Southborough’s Gobble Wobble Gives Back

Despite it being one of the coldest Thanksgiving days on record, over 800 runners signed up for the Gobble Wobble in support of Southborough’s 12th annual family event. Some runners even got into the spirit of Thanksgiving wearing festive turkey outfits for all to enjoy.

Friends of Southborough Recreation’s (FOSR) partnership with the Southborough Food Pantry this year underscores the importance of giving back to those in need. By providing the food pantry with $4,000 raised from the Gobble Wobble, almost 150 individuals and families will continue to receive weekly or monthly items that will help provide food security and meet basic needs. You can learn more about the Southborough Food Pantry by visiting their website at http://www.southboroughfoodpantry.org/.

We greatly appreciate the hard work of our volunteers, sponsors and participants who helped make this event a success and we are honored to ensure raised dollars go directly back into the community to support quality wellness activities for all ages. Our goal is to make sure every person has access to opportunities that improve health, connectedness and well-being.

In past years, FOSR has helped support the implementation of the new Fayville playground as well as the playground at the Mary Finn Elementary school. Southborough Summer Nights, a free fun family event in August with live music, games, food and more would not be possible over the last 15 years without the support of FOSR. We have also partnered with Special Olympics as well as supported scholarships for in-need families to participate in critical afterschool programs and sports. To learn more about how you can help donate or volunteer, please visit our website at https://www.friendsofsboro.com/.

You can also learn more about year-round recreational activities, including summer camp, birthday parties, afterschool programs, winter, fall, spring and summer sports and trips by going to https://southborough.recdesk.com/Community/Page?pageId=2973 and registering online.
