The Cooperating Christian Churches of Oroville is hosting its 7th Annual Hunger Walk Saturday, March 19th.
Organizers say that every day hunger takes a toll on individuals and families across the country, and locally. So the Hunger Walk is a way to promote awareness and raise donations for several local organizations that serve the hungry and the homeless. Those organizations include Feed the People Ministries, the Oroville Rescue Mission, the Oroville Salvation Army and the Hope Center.
Sign ups for the Hunger Walk begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Riverbend Park. Coffee and donuts will be served. The 2 mile walk through downtown Oroville will begin at 9 a.m.
There will be rest stations at churches along the way and vans will cruise the route to pick up those who are unable to complete the walk.
To make a donation or sign up to take part you can call (530) 534-9455 or (530) 604-6033.
