Did you know that in the New Hanover County school district alone, more than 600 students are counted as being homeless? The 2015 North Carolina Point-in-Time Count found that 15.4% of the homeless in New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties were children.
Join us on Saturday, May 6 at WALK TOGETHER – a family-fun walking event around Hugh MacRae Park! This event teaches kids how to give back to those less fortunate while raising funds and awareness to end childhood homelessness in our community. Participants will be helping Good Shepherd ensure that children in our area have a hot meal, a warm bed and the opportunity to have a permanent home. WALK TOGETHER! includes food and drinks for all participants. There will also be face painting, crafts and learning activities for the kids after they walk!
Help Good Shepherd Center put an end to childhood homelessness while teaching kids about homelessness and philanthropy. We are asking each participant to make a commitment of at least $10 per walker. But we urge the kids to encourage sponsors to donate to increase the impact of their participation. Kids can ask friends, family or others to sponsor them. To register online, please CLICK HERE.
