Thank You for Supporting the GFW Great Food Walk on Good Friday
The weather was better than forecast and 138 walkers from 21 towns participated in this year’s GFW (Great Food Walk on Good Friday), walking 625 miles over Harvard’s scenic, 5-mile loop course. We’ll update this post with the final amount raised for Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and Sharing, Inc. soon.
As always, this great cooperative effort was a success thanks to the steadfast support of our walkers, nearly 60 GFW volunteers, the Girl Scouts for baking their hallmark brownies, the Boy Scouts for the welcome clean-up help, the Harvard Department of Public Works, the Police Department, Donelan’s Market in Littleton for waters, the local newspapers, Fruitlands Museum/Trustees of Reservation, and for hosting us – the Congregational Church!
Contributions are still arriving – it’s not too late to donate online or send a contribution to GFW, 94 Jackson Rd., Suite 105B, Devens, MA 01434)!
Both Loaves & Fishes, serving clients in Ayer, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Littleton & Shirley, and Sharing, Inc., helping people in the rural South, are appreciative of the continued generosity in our wider community.
Thanks to everyone who supported the GFW.
