Volunteers Needed

The City of Acworth Parks and Recreation Department together with the Tackle Hunger program has fed hundreds of families each holiday season since 2003. Through a community effort, the Acworth Parks and Recreation Department will hold the 2018 Acworth Turkey Chase 5K Fun Run & 2K Walk on Saturday, November 18 through Historic Downtown Acworth to collect non-perishable food items to aid in the 2018 Tackle Hunger Food Drive. A portion of the proceeds and all non-perishable food items will benefit the Tackle Hunger Food Drive. Last year’s event had over 950 participants and collected 2,500 non-perishable food items. The only way we can make this event a success is with help from volunteers. We are looking for individuals to help on race day. Volunteer opportunities include registration/race packet pick up and race course volunteers to direct runners. Email or call 770-917-1234. More info available at
