There are many wonderful charities and organizations in place these days, especially those which help the less fortunate such as Fannie Mae Help the Homeless and United Communities Against Poverty Prince George’s County (UCAPPGC). When these two entities join forces, the results are even more successful. This year Fannie Mae Help the Homeless and UCAPPGC are joining together in a Help the Homeless Mini-Walkathon. Sponsored by Wegmans and My Bougie Baby, this walkathon on October 22, 2011 is sure to yield fantastic results.
This mini-walkathon will take place at Shepherd’s Cove from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The funds received from the mini-walkathon will go directly to help one of the Fannie Mae Help the Homeless beneficiaries, UCAPPGC. This money makes it possible for UCAPPGC to provide services to homeless individuals within Prince George’s County and open up a whole new world of possibilities for these individuals who are eager to make a new start and need some assistance doing so.
By spending just three hours of your day and paying a small registration fee to participate in the mini-walkathon, you are doing your part to help our fellow members of society. Not only will you be helping others who truly need and deserve the chance to move forward with their lives but you will be able to learn more about homelessness, discard any misconceptions about homelessness, congregate with others who are there to support the same cause and get some exercise as well.
