On Sunday, February 5, over 400 people gathered from across western Massachusetts to walk in the name of ending homelessness in our region. The energy was high, the connection was strong – our elected leaders, our providers, our community – all together to share our commitment and our determination to make housing a reality for all. It was a beautiful morning in so many ways!
We cannot thank enough the Winter Walk organization – specifically Ari Barbanell, Amanda Grant and Sophia Paarz – a mighty team of 3 who brought their own incredible passion and skill to creating such a powerful event for our region. We are so grateful! And we are already looking forward to building on this amazing start for next year – and the year after that.
Check out more photos here, a powerful 4 minute video produced by Winter Walk (with thanks to Clinical & Support Options and Providence Ministries) and the media coverage here.
FYI: Fundraising is open until the end of February if you would like to support this year’s partners! 100% of funds raised by participants goes directly back to them to continue their work in our community. Donate here.
