Walk for Warmth 2021
Although we would love to gather everyone together for our annual Walk for Warmth, our first priority is keeping you safe! That’s why this year’s Walk for Warmth will be a virtual event.
The 2021 walk is one of the most important ones ever. During a pandemic, when people are asked to shelter at home, it’s especially important to help vulnerable people get off the street.
During the month of February, you can choose any day to do your two-mile (or length of your choice) walk to end homelessness. You can walk with others or alone. When you do walk, please send us a picture or short video to share on social media.
Registration is available online. The registration fee is $30 per person. All walkers will receive a t-shirt.
Just like past years, we urge you to get people to sponsor you for this important walk and top fund-raisers will receive prizes!
You can create a fund-raiser on your Facebook page to make it incredibly easy for your friends and family to donate to your Walk for Warmth. To get started, simply go to https://www.facebook.com/fund/LexingtonRescue/
If you prefer fund-raising the old fashioned way, just download the Pledge collection form and start raising money to keep people in their homes.
Please turn in all your funds raised to end homelessness by February 22 to be eligible to receive prizes. Prizes for the top fund-raisers will be announced on February 25.

What’s New at the Mission?
Christmas Dinner – December 23
More than 100 volunteers made it possible for us to serve 992 Christmas dinners; the most we’ve ever served!
We were sad not to be able to have our in-person Christmas dinner, but due to COVID-19 we had to adjust. We provided carry-out meals, and the for the first time, we also delivered Christmas dinner.
We invited people to call in and reserve a meal and the response was overwhelming. Volunteers delivered over 700 meals. We are so thankful we were able to serve additional people who may not have been able to join us in person.
Thank you so much for your generosity that made it possible for so many people to receive a home-cooked, traditional Christmas dinner!!

Thank you for caring about our homeless neighbors!
Do you have your copy of the 2020 Street Guide?
This guide is designed to help our homeless neighbors access basic necessities in Lexington. You can help by printing and sharing it with men, women and youth who are in need. We recommend keeping a few copies in your car or putting one in your wallet or purse. You can also give several guides to your workplace, school or church to keep on-hand for anyone in need.
Thank you for your compassion for those in need!
