Why We Walk
Here’s what the Good Friday Walk means to me: Great cause, great people and most importantly, great brownies for the past 25 years.
The GFW is special! All of the volunteers are so friendly. I'm impressed that high school students do their part, even coming in early before school to help get ready. I've done the Walk for a number of years and plan to do it again!
Ray was the ultimate Loaves & Fishes volunteer. Fifteen years ago he recruited me to join him as a volunteer, and we worked side by side at the pantry, Shop for Your Kids, and the Good Friday Walk until his passing in 2012. For the fourth straight year our team will walk in Ray's memory with the generous support of our friends and neighbors. We walk to honor him and his dedication to Loaves & Fishes.
The Walk is a win-win-win. Walking with friends to raise money for a great, local cause on a scenic route including views of the Monadnock Region is hard to beat!
The Good Friday Walk is something I look forward to every year. The walk itself could not be in a prettier setting and is typically time well spent catching up with friends. The benefits of knowing it will help neighbors who are going through a rough time; priceless.
