No one should ever go hungry, Sharon Tillmon, director Social Services, said Sunday during the morning worship service at Saint Sabina where she called for 100 people to sign up for the churchâ€™s 28th annual Hunger Walk being held at Soldier Field, Saturday, June 29, 2013.
Registration will be conducted at 7:30 a.m. and the Hunger Walk steps off at 8:30 a.m. â€œAll proceeds will go to the Saint Sabina Food Pantry,â€ she explained. â€œThe purpose of the Hunger Walk is to raise funds and to raise awareness of the work that we do in the communityâ€ including providing food for those in need.
Tillmon urged people to take a pledge sheet, to get sponsors and to attend the June 29th event. â€œIf you canâ€™t come, please sponsor someone. If you can walk, Iâ€™d appreciate it because we get an additional $12.00 for every walker and this year we want 100 walkers,â€ she told the congregation.
â€œIt will be a fun day and something for the entire family. Everyone will receive goody bag and a T-shirt to commemorate the day,â€ Tillmon said.
