Do you know that there are nearly 12,000 homeless persons in our region? Mishkan Torah invites you to join in a community effort to raise awareness and funds to help those in need of shelter
Who: The entire community is invited to participate
What: 2013 Help the Homeless Walk, benefiting the Community Crisis Center of Prince Georges County
Where: Gather at Mishkan Torah and walk around Greenbelt Lake in Buddy Attic Park --approximately 2 miles
Why: Because funds are needed to help shelter those without homes
You can register online. The registration fee is $20 per walker – $50 for a family of three or more.
Walk funds go directly to the local nonprofit, Community Crisis Services, Inc. (CCSI), to support its Homeless Services Division, which includes the Warm Nights Emergency Hypothermia Shelter Program.
