I am raising funds for the annual 2020 Get Steppin' Walk for the Homeless. Proceeds fund annual operations of Steppingstone's First Step Inn 50-bed emergency homeless shelter. The First Step Inn helps about 400 homeless people each year by providing safe warm shelter, daily meals, and comprehensive services.
On a cold snowy or rainy day, I try to imagine myself living on the streets and hungry with no place to go and no one to help me. It's heartbreaking to think that some people are in that situation. I met an older homeless man the other day who also was suffering from the flu and it was very sad that he was in that situation. I am fortunate that I am not in that situation and I hope to help others less fortunate through this fundraising.
