LINCOLNTON, N.C.––This past weekend’s annual Hunger Walk was a big success.
That’s the word Wednesday from Mitzi Williams. The executive director of Christian Ministry of Lincoln County, Williams said the event raises money for the local charity’s LINC Meals program, which provides hot meals for Lincoln County’s senior and homebound citizens.
Williams said that more than 200 people turned out to walk through downtown Lincolnton. She added that to date, more than $4,000 has been raised for this worthy cause.
“Most walkers collect after the walk, so funds are still coming in,” she said. “If anyone knows some walkers and wants to donate in their honor, please mail your donations to Christian Ministry.”
That address is: Christian Ministry, PO Box 423, Lincolnton, NC 28093.
“Thank you!” a grateful Williams added to all those who took part in the walk.
She also cited the benedictory words of St. Paul, as found in his First Epistle to the Thessalonians, Chapter Five, verse 28: “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
