Each year in June we participate the Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk to raise awareness for the fight against hunger and convey the message that that hunger is unacceptable in our community. It is also one of the important fundraisers of the year for Shepherd’s HOPE. Every dollar goes directly into our account to purchase food from the depository for the Food Pantry and The Family Feeding Center. In addition we can earn bonus dollars for reaching certain benchmark levels of donations.
The 5K walk begins this year at Jackson Park. Join the 14,000 other participants for a great morning of fun and exercise for an important cause. There are several ways you can participate:
- Join our team and walk on June 25 (each walker earns $12 just for participation)
- Donate to our team
- Donate directly to Shepherd’s Hope (Select Hunger Walk Youth)
- Send your check directly to Shepherd’s Hope, PO Box 21013, Chicago, IL 60621. (Mark as Hunger Walk Youth)
- Ask others to support you by donating to our team – or invite them to walk as well.
