Another very warm, Sept. 24th afternoon greeted 269 energetic Walkers ready to 'Help End Hunger One Step at a Time'. Central Kentucky's only Walk to fight hunger and poverty, near and far, has raised to date nearly $23,000! Although we did not achieve our 30th Anniversary $30,000 goal, we are hopeful that expected Christmas and end-of-year donations will be forthcoming.Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all.
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
We represented a diverse, interfaith community of 25 church families and friends from 6 counties; Fayette, Scott, Woodford, Jessamine, Clark and Bourbon and 2 organizations; ONE and God's Pantry Food Bank. We welcomed 'new' friends this year: Southern Hills United Methodist Church (UMC), Centenary UMC, Northeast Christian Church, Central Christian, Versailles Presbyterian, Clintonville Christian and First Christian, Richmond KY.
After 14 years of Walking Together with each one of you and yours, and working with Church World Service and God's Pantry Food Bank to make a difference in the lives of all God's children in need, I am truly grateful for our commitments to 'be the change we want to see'. Thanks to one and all for your time, energy, resources and dedication to Our Walk Mission! Looking forward to 2018!
With Gratitude, Peace, Joy and Love,
Judy Maxson, Walk organizer
