Just as St. Paul Village will serve the entire community and not just the church itself, the St. Paul Village Community Walk and 5K Run will likewise benefit more than just its own fundraising effort. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to other community organizations - Men in Black and Pee Wee Homes in 2019. "We ask our members to tithe," says event organizer Anissa McLendon, "We should lead by example. We want this to truly be a community event."
