Walk for Warmth – OLHSA’s biggest and best fundraiser for 22 years – is around the corner! Consider joining us today. Teams, individuals, and sponsors are welcome. You’ll be helping your friends and neighbors stay safe and warm while enjoying a Saturday morning, family-friendly event! Distances are non-competitive and both Walks are indoors. Not bad, for February! Check us out on our website, here, or on Facebook, here. With your support we’ll help even more families stay warm in 2012.
Become part of the movement! There are Walk for Warmth events all across the country as other Community Action Agencies raise awareness for this important cause. Walk for Warmth is held indoors in both counties OLHSA serves. The event is non-competitive and includes entertainment along the walk course, is family friendly, and includes perks like a t-shirt and refreshments.People who benefit from Walk for Warmth are residents of Oakland and Livingston Counties. They access the Emergency Utility Assistance program, which is funded by contributions from Walk for Warmth, when faced with a utility shut-off notice. Funds are used throughout the year, but many people associate utility emergencies with the cold winter months.
People who participate in Walk for Warmth are volunteers, stakeholders, elected officials, individual donors, corporate funders, event sponsors, community partners and community members, past and current clients, and vendors. People are invited to participate as individuals or by forming teams.
Help is available.
