On Saturday, May 30 St. Margaret Mary Parish is holding a charity walk to benefit Loaves & Fishes Community Services (a registered 501(c)(3) organization, www.loaves-fishes.org that has served our community since 1984. Their vision is to end hunger in our community by providing food and mobilizing resources to empower people to be self-sufficient. Loaves and Fishes distributes over 60,000 pounds of groceries each week and they depend on a network of over 1,000 volunteers to collect, sort and stock their shelves and assist their clients.
Check-in and on-site registration will begin at 9:00 am. The program will start at 9:40 am and the walk will step off at 10:00 am. The event will end around noon. Everyone in the Naperville/DuPage County Community is invited to participate in this walk.
