Walk for Hunger - May 7 2017
Join the United Parish Team in the 2017 Walk for Hunger on May 7th. Plan to participate this year by walking, being a virtual walker, or sponsoring a walker on the team. This year there is even a 5K Run option! Our Mission Giving Ministry Team is contributing $1500 to get us started, and will contribute $50 for each walker/runner who signs up as part of the United Parish team.
The United Parish has a 30+ year tradition of joining Project Bread's Walk for Hunger, a fundraising and community planning organization for more than 400 hunger programs across Massachusetts.
Project Bread assists the 9.6% of Massachusetts families that deal with some level of food insecurity. Project Bread funds Chefs in Schools to improve the nutrition of school lunches, a user-friendly website to help people sign up for Food Stamps, a food source hotline (800-645-8333), and food programs such as the Brookline Food Pantry.
Once again, many United Parish families will participate in the Walk for Hunger, walking together with their church friends, classmates and families. This is a fun way to get to know others better at United Parish and to show our support of the greater community at the same time. Children through the 5th grade must be accompanied by an adult. If your child is that age and would like to walk, but you cannot accompany them, please arrange for your child to accompany another family.
We will meet at the United Parish parking lot on Sunday, May 7th at 8:30am and then take the T together to where the walk begins. We will then walk back to the United Parish building in time for worship @ 11am.
"How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:15)
