McDermott Free Will Baptist Church will be holding a Hunger Walk on Saturday with all proceeds from the event benefiting the church food pantry.
“We operate a small food pantry in McDermott and every now and then we do something to raise money for the pantry. Through the pantry, we serve a little over 300 families a month,” said Frances Spencer, event spokesperson. “So, we decided to hold a hunger walk to raise funds for the pantry.”
The event is scheduled for Saturday May 11 with a start time of 10 a.m.
The walk will begin at the McDermott Community of Christ located on Barker Street in McDermott.
Registration for the walk is $20 or more and comes with an event T-Shirt. Donations will be accepted from those who wish not to walk for the pantry. After the walk water, beans and sandwiches will be available.
During the event there will be a bake sale, and various games including corn hole, horse shoe and dominoes.
For more information about the event call 740-858-5096 or 740-682-7576.
