Do you want to provide someone a “hand up in life, instead of a hand out”? Do you believe in giving people another chance? Do you believe no one should go hungry? Each year we advocate for these issues through Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. This is an annual program where people come together across the city to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness.
The St. Francis House will hold the Third Annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes event on Saturday, November 23, 2019. Registration begins begins at 10:30 a.m. At 11 a.m. there will be a short program before the one-mile walk to the St. Francis House. After the walk there will be a free lunch for all participants.
Please join us in raising awareness by providing a new or gently-used backpack filled with 15 pounds of canned goods, thermals, socks, etc. Many of our guests arrive with just a backpack filled with all their possessions, with many not having proper shoes to wear. So, for just one day, let’s walk a mile in their shoes.We will begin the walk at the memorial for the homeless in our community, which is located at 6th Street and the Big Sioux River (behind the LSS Building).
