Reaching Out...Changing Lives

Categories ,


Over 200 took part at our 7th Annual Walk A Mile In My Shoes event held on Saturday, February 3, 2018. Registration began at 10:00 am at the Westminister Moriah Olivet Presbyterian Church and the walk began at 11:00 am across the street at Hanna Park. It was a sunny, but cold 9 degree day. The one mile walk course was altered a bit from years past to include West Street where our new apartments are currently being constructed. After the walk we assembled back at the WMO Presbyterian Church and enjoyed hot soup – made by our Food Services Department, garlic knots – compliments of Charlie’s Pizza and brownies.

The day was a great success raising $10,000 to help raise awareness on homelessness & hunger! Thank you to this year’s sponsors:
