Saturday October 5th, 2 pm, Black & Gold Park
This will be the 10th annual Gordon County Hunger Walk. The purpose of the event has always been to raise funds and raise awareness and we are making a bigger push than ever before to be more visible in the community. The event will be on a Saturday this year instead of a Sunday afternoon. We have already reached out to local businesses and started receiving donations and sponsorships. There will be an event t-shirt for sale this year for $20 and half of that purchase price goes directly to the cause. All money raised will be split evenly among four area food banks: Blewer Food Center, the VAC, God’s Pantry (at the 7th Day Adventist Church) and St. Vincent de Paul’s Food Pantry (St. Clements Catholic Church). There is no fee to register or walk, donations will be accepted the day of the walk. Walk will begin at the Black & Gold Park pavilion located at Hwy. 53 spur and McDaniel Station Rd. Water will be provided, walk happens rain or shine.
