“Rise Up & Walk for Hunger” supports our local food pantries through the Good Shepherd Food Bank, which will use the funds to help the following food pantries in the Lakes Region Area:
Bridgton-United Methodist Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church; Casco-Casco Alliance Church, Casco Village Church, Naples-United Methodist Church and CrossWalk Community Outreach, Harrison-Seventh Day Adventist Church
Today, Good Shepherd Food Bank feeds over 100,000 people each month. Who are they? They may be a neighbor, a co-worker or even a family member…. many who never dreamed that they would be needing help. A gift of $10 to the Good Shepherd Food Bank provides 40 meals!
In order to walk all you need to do is have people sponsor you. With just a few sponsors you can make a big difference. Share with your friends what their donations to your walk will accomplish. For every $100 raised, that equals $800 in food.
Good Shepherd is willing to process your pledges via credit card directly. You may reach them at 782-3554. Please specify that the donation is for the "Rise Up and Walk for Hunger Event". Their website is www.gsfb.org.
You may also bring your pledges with you on the day of the walk. Please make checks payable to Good Shepherd Food Bank and make a note on the check that it is for the "Rise Up and Walk for Hunger".
