This Sunday (3/6) from 2pm - 4pm, Kristen and I will be participating in the Hunger Walk Run 2022. Food insecurity is a major problem in this country, and this event goes a long way in helping our community support those in need. Quite simply, the Hunger Walk is one of the most important hunger relief efforts of the year.
I’ve included some information at the bottom of this page to provide more information and context around the growing problem of food insecurity.
You can help in two ways, both equally important:
1) Join us on Sunday, and walk or run the 5k event in downtown Atlanta!
- Click the "Join Team" button, register for the event, and get your shoes on to come walk from 2-4pm this Sunday in downtown ATL!
2) Donate to help a great cause and a great organization working every day to fight food insecurity.
- Click on the "Donate Now" button
- Complete the donation form. A gift receipt will automatically be emailed to you.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
If you are inclined, please share this link via Tweet(!), on other social media platforms, via email, a text, a greeting card, your personal carrier pigeon, or any means: http://engage.acfb.org/goto/TeamOliverHungerWalk . Bring your friends/family or ask them if they’d like to make a contribution. Every dollar truly helps!
I hope you will consider joining the event or supporting the wonderful people at the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the people they help every day.
The money we raise will provide hope for the 1 in 7 people who face hunger in greater Atlanta and north Georgia. That’s too many people who have to face excruciating decisions about whether to pay their bills or feed their families. Most are hard-working people who are dealing with an unexpected challenge and costs they couldn’t afford.
Together, we can make sure that a child in our community doesn’t go to bed hungry tonight. We can offer a glimmer of hope to struggling parents desperately trying to make ends meet for their family. We can ensure another senior citizen isn’t forced to choose between paying for medicine or food. Regardless of the reason or situation, nobody should go hungry, so let’s help solve this problem!
