A recent event was all about helping local people in need.

Between 250-300 people gathered at the corner of Jefferson and 35th Street in Texarkana, Arkansas to participate in Kilpatrick’s Elementary 2nd Annual Hunger’s No Game 5K/Fun Run.

Entry for the Fun Run was 10 canned food items to be donated to a local charity. The school sponsored event brought in astounding 12,000 non-perishable items to be donated to Harvest Regional Food Bank. School officials stated that Harvest Regional was chosen due to providing weekend meals for students within the Texarkana area.

Kilpatrick would like to thank all that supported this event, making the 5K a success in its second year.
