On Feb. 27, Community Action will host a Walk for Warmth, a mile-long walk complete with pledges for donations. The goal this year is to raise $1,100 toward helping families suffering from heat-related emergencies. Starting at the Three Rivers Community Center, registration begins at 9 a.m., opening ceremonies at 9:30 a.m., and the walk itself starts at 10 a.m.
Every year, members of the National Honor Society participate in the Walk for Warmth. “We raise money for people who don’t have enough money to pay heat bills in the cold, so we can experience what it would be like without heat,” said NHS President Lezlie Lull. “You’re able to help a lot of people, and I don’t think a lot of people realize that some people don’t have heat.”
However, anyone can participate! Simply pick up a pledge sheet, collect pledges, recruit friends and family, and form a team. If you are unable to participate in the Walk itself, you can still help out by mailing your donation to the Community Action office (175 Main St., Battle Creek, Mich. 49014). When writing a check, make it payable to “Community Action Walk for Warmth” and specify which community you would like to receive your donation.
