Reaching Out...Changing Lives

Categories ,


Over 300 took part at our 8th Annual Walk A Mile In My Shoes event held on Saturday, February 2, 2019. 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 0 degree day. After the walk we assembled back at the WMO Presbyterian Church and enjoyed hot soup – made by our Food Services Department, and pastries – compliments of Holland Farms.

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