Many families in Union County are hurting this winter. Cold weather and unemployment from the on-going recession have often led to heartbreaking choices between buying food or vital medications or paying for a home heating emergency. 100% of Walk for Warmth funds goes to assist families in Union County who may not be eligible for federal energy assistance programs but who are in real need. We are helping our neighbors who might otherwise “fall between the cracks.” This fundraiser calls each of us to open our hearts and wallets to help families, friends, and neighbors through a difficult time. With partners like you, we can make a difference! For every $3,000 we raise, approximately ten local families stay safe in their homes. Thank you for accepting both the opportunity and challenge to "move your feet to give others heat."
