Join supports of the Spooner House on Saturday, May 21 starting at 9 a.m. (rain or shine) to take part in the 19th annual Walk for the Hungry and Homeless. Registration is at the fountain at the Division Street entrance to the Derby Greenway beginning at 8:30 a.m. with a 9 a.m. kick off. Participants are asked to make a minimum $20 donation to receive an event t-shirt and goody bag, available to the first 250 people who register. All participants will receive a ticket for a drawing with over 30 prizes available from area restaurants and businesses. The entire walk route is 3.4 miles along the Naugatuck River but participants may travel any distance they choose. All money raised will go towards the hunger and homeless initiatives provided by the Spooner House homeless shelter and food bank, operated by Area Congregations Together, Inc.
On Friday, May 20 from 4 to 7 p.m., walkers will have the opportunity to pick up their walk t-shirt and drop off their pledge form in advance during a special Community Open House at Spooner House located at 30 Todd Road in Shelton. Participants can also register online to form and join teams at crowdrise.com/SpoonerHouseWalk.
