CROS Ministries’ annual Hustle to End Hunger 5K on Oct. 2 at John Prince Park in Lake Worth Beach will raise money and awareness about the shortages at local food banks.
The run/walk has live and virtual options — with registration at https://runsignup.com/Race/FL/LakeWorth/Hustle2EndHunger5K. But the mission to help hungry people doesn’t end when the race is over.
First Presbyterian Church of Delray Beach participates in the race each year, then continues to collect nonperishable food for CROS Ministries’ pantries throughout the month.
All gifts of canned or boxed, unopened, unexpired, nonperishable food can help. You can leave your donation in the lobby on Sunday mornings or on the cart outside the sanctuary doors by the covered circle during the workweek at 33 Gleason St., Delray Beach.
For other ways to help, visit www.crosministries.org.

Drive-thru blessings for animals on Oct. 3
St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church’s annual Blessing of the Animals drive-thru event returns from 4 to 5 p.m. Oct. 3 on the church campus at 3300A S. Seacrest Blvd., Boynton Beach. Pets will again be blessed by one of the priests through car windows. Call 561-732-3060.

Pumpkin fun on tap at Delray Beach church
Pumpkins are set to arrive at Cason United Methodist Church, 342 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach, in mid-October. The Pumpkin Patch opens at 9 a.m. Oct. 15 and continues through the end of the month. A trunk-or-treat event takes place Oct. 30. Call 561-276-5302 for more information.

Clothing donations needed for shower truck clients
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Interfaith Committee for Social Services has partnered with the Delray Beach Police Department to keep its shower truck operations available to homeless people.
A major aspect is the distribution of clean clothing to participants. The shower truck is desperately in need of men’s shorts and jeans in sizes 32-34.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 188 S. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach, is assisting with the collection of clothing. Contact Caren Kilpatrick, parish administrator, at 561-319-7947.
