FREDERICK, Maryland—Hood College’s 2nd Annual Walk Strong fundraiser to benefit the Frederick Rescue Mission will be held Oct. 26.
Participants will meet on the steps of Alumnae Hall at 12:45 p.m. They will walk around the residence halls on campus and finish behind Alumnae Hall.
The money raised will go directly toward the Frederick Rescue Mission to help with its food distribution center and faith house. Participants are not required to donate money to participate in the walk, but there are thank-you gifts for those who donate, including wristbands, sunglasses and T-shirts, depending on the amount.
The Frederick Rescue Mission provides food and clothing to those who need the most help from their communities. It also provides resources for people overcoming drug and alcohol addictions, and it supports homeless people in their efforts to find housing.
