It's that time of year again! CUMC will again host our own Help-the-Homeless Mini-walk to support the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN). This year's walk will take place on October 14, 2012 at 12:30 P.M. We will meet in the Hitt Fellowship Hall.
A-SPAN serves single homeless adults all over Arlington with everything from nightly meals on the street, showers and laundry, to employment & housing case management, eviction prevention services and permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless. A-SPAN is also our dedicated partner in the Friday morning drop-in shelter that is run and supported by Central. By walking on behalf of A-SPAN, we will raise awareness and funds for their programs, and we’ll have a great time doing it!
It’s easy to walk and help our neighbors in need. All you have to do is complete a registration form and turn it in, along with your registration fee. This year, those who wish to walk are encouraged to register online at www.hthwalks.org. Registration fees are donated to A-SPAN and everyone who registers to walk gets a Walkathon t-shirt. For youth walkers (ages 25 and younger) the fee is $20. For adults (26 years and older) the fee is $30. And, this year, we are working on a very special way for the walk to benefit those homeless clients of our Friday morning program.
Stay tuned for details. If you have any questions, please contact the CUMC office at Office@CUMCBallston.org.
