Virtual Capuchin Walk Supports Detroit’s Needy

Want to help the hungry in your community while spending time with your family? The virtual walk by Capuchin Community Services is the perfect event for you.

Families looking to do something meaningful together while raising money to help the hungry have a new option this month: A virtual walk for Capuchin Community Services.

The annual walk went virtual as organizers saw the need for resources growing, says Diana Christensen-Clark, Capuchin communications manager.

Families near and far can commit together to raise money while walking in their neighborhoods and parks, she says.

Families can register for the virtual walk online and can participate in the walk anytime Friday, July 17 or Saturday, July 18, 2020. Money raised by walkers will go to support Capuchin Community Services’ two ministry sites: The House of Peace and St Ben’s Community Meal.

The Capuchin Province of St. Joseph began its Detroit ministry on Mt. Elliott Street in 1883. It serves people through multiple meal sites, food and clothing distribution centers including the Rosa Parks Children’s Program, On the Rise Bakery and Café and Earthworks Urban Farm.
