Project Description

Project Bread's Walk for Hunger occurs every year on the first Sunday of may! It's an incredible 20 mile walk around Boston to raise money for people who have financial difficulties and don't have a reliable source of food. Having an LHS team is an opportunity to bond with other NHS members (it's hard not to after walking for 5 hours together) and raise money for program that is supporting thousands of people in the Boston Area. You can sign up for the team i've created at projectbread.org. The team is LHS Against Hunger. You are encouraged to walk with the team, but you can also walk with your family or friends. The team goal is $5,000, but I think we are capable, given the size of NHS, of raising much more than that. The primary way to raise money to get donations from friends and families- project bread makes it very easy to email relatives, and you can set up a personal page so people can donate online. We will be having bakesales and doing other fundraisers to raise money as well! I hope you'll consider signing up for this project and become involved either by baking for a bakesale or walking with the team! Email me at (address redacted) or message me on facebook for more info about project bread. We will have a meeting Tuesday the 25th when we get back from break!
