At Trinity United Church we encounter many people who are hungry, homeless or hurting. Each of those people has a story to tell – sometimes a story of their struggles with addiction, or mental health issues, sometimes a string of bad luck, or a need to start over, or a story of just being alone. We are fortunate to have Food Banks in our city, including one at Trinity that helps to feed hungry people. We are also very lucky to have the gathering place, North Bay’s community soup kitchen. Each week day, caring teams of people work together to make a hot meal for anyone who needs it – but they also offer a place where people can gather as a community.
I am proud to be walking as part of the Coldest Night of the Year winter walk-a-thon to raise money in support of the gathering place. I would like to invite anyone interested in joining me and Team Trinity as we walk together in solidarity and commitment on February 22nd. Some of us will be walking 2km, some 5 km and maybe a few of us will even walk 10km.
If you are unable to join our team on February 22nd, a donation to our team would be gratefully accepted. You can click on the link below it will connect you to my personal fundraising page. On this page you can click “Donate Now” to donate money or you can click on “Join the Team” to walk with us.
