THE RETRO RUN IS COSPONSORED BY COMMON HEART AND THE TOWN OF INDIAN TRAIL SUPPORTING THE WORK OF COMMON HEART AND ITS VOLUNTEERS IN THE COMMUNITY.
Founded in 2006, Common Heart works to create a “small revolution of kindness” in our community to eradicate food insecurity and eliminate generational poverty. Common Heart's programs are designed to engage community volunteer action in 3 areas: food pantries, economic empowerment and literacy.
The 501(c)3 nonprofit with locations in Indian Trail and Marshville, serves under-resourced families and individuals who live in Union County and the surrounding area through 10 food pantry outreaches serving an average 5,500 individuals each month. Common Heart's Economic Empowerment programs provide focus groups and resource building programs to move under-resourced families into stability. Common Heart has taken the lead in reviving the adult literacy program in Union County recognizing that basic skills and education are keys to upward mobility.
Donations and volunteers are always welcome and appreciated. Find more information about Common Heart online at www.CommonHeart.org.
