upcoming EVENTS

You can help people experiencing homelessness in Lexington this winter. We are receiving 8-12 requests PER DAY for housing assistance. By joining the Walk for Warmth and asking friends and family to support your walk, you can help these neighbors get out of homelessness! The money by this event raised will help pay move-in costs and support to move them into homes.

This walk will be virtual – meaning we won’t gather together for a big event – to keep everyone safe and healthy. Instead, pick the day and time of your choice between March 13 and March 19 to walk alone or with a team of friends. Please be sure to register online at walkforwarmth.org. The registration fee is $30 per adult, and all walkers will receive an event t-shirt.

 One of the easiest ways to raise money is creating a fund-raiser on your Facebook page for your friends and family to donate to your Walk for Warmth. Be sure to set your fundraiser to end on March 18. Prizes for the top individual and team fund-raisers will be announced on March 25. For more details, please go to walkforwarmth.org.

Thank you for helping end homelessness for local individuals and families!
