Volunteers Needed: Walk the Walk for Hunger!

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Put on your walking shoes and join us to raise funds for the Catholic Charities Feeding Our Neighbors Campaign this Sunday, October 19th  at 9am, following family mass.

All walkers will meet at The Epiphany School on 234 East 22nd Street.

The Epiphany Foundation will be raising money for Epiphany School through their annual walk-a-thon.

They are also raising in-kind donations to feed our hungry neighbors.

To participate, all walkers are asked to bring at least 5 cans of food or a donation of $10. To sign up to walk, please register here and Walk The Walk For Hunger  

All funds raised will make a direct impact on Epiphany School and all non-perishable food items collected will benefit our Feeding Our Neighbors program – to restock our food pantries.

Feeding Our Neighbors is an Archdiocesan-wide drive to replenish food pantries supporting non-Catholics and Catholics alike.
