Donations needed for the Annual Paul "Earthquake" Moore Turkey Run
Philadelphia community activist Paul "Earthquake" Moore, needs donations of turkey and stuffing and running enthusiasts as well, to participate in his annual turkey run and food drive both of which take place in Southwest Philadelphia this year and are held to reduce hunger among families during the holiday season.
What started as a one man jog-a-thon 11-years-ago down South Broad Street, has become the Paul "Earthquake" Moore Annual Celebrity Turkey Run down Woodland Avenue. The run will start on Woodland Avenue at 50th Street and end at Island Avenue/Cobbs Creek Parkway at 11AM on Saturday, November 17, 2012.
Quake, winner of the Wrice-Campbell Award for Neighborhood Safety, has asked for all Philadelphians to join him and support this effort. Deputy Police Commissioner Stephen Johnson, a longtime run supporter, will lead this year's trek with Tia Gray and her fellow employees at Nova Care.
In addition Moore will host his annual, 24-hour food-a-thon drive the weekend before the run. Stop by, socialize and party while you donate. The event will have live entertainment, a DJ and more in the parking lot at the Island Market, Island and Woodland Avenues at Cobbs Creek Parkway, beginning at noon on Saturday, November 10 and ending at noon on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012.
He is asking for canned food donations of all kinds to be brought to Island Market's parking lot to add to his Thanksgiving baskets for needy residents of Philadelphia and Delaware counties. The run takes place the following week.
"Remember our goal is to get 300 turkey dinners, and in order to accomplish this we need you," Moore emphatically emphasized. Moore needs every runner to show up with a turkey and stuffing, to help reach his goal of feeding 1,000 families in Philadelphia and Delaware counties for Thanksgiving. Monetary donations and turkeys and stuffing from those unable to run. will gladly be accepted on the day of both events.
Any well wisher can mail a donation to P.O. Box 5323 Phila., PA 19142; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
