Hundreds of people from SE Ohio are expected to participate in the 11th Annual Good Works Walk on Saturday, February 23, 2013 from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.  The event begins and ends at First United Methodist Church on College St. in uptown Athens.

This year, Good Works will create five engaging and interactive experiences for adults and children of all ages to inform the public about homelessness and poverty in SE Ohio and to raise funds for the Good Works’ Timothy House—the only shelter for the rural homeless in nine counties.  Homelessness has increased dramatically in SE Ohio this year. The Good Works Timothy House could not accommodate and had to turn away more than 260 people (more than half of these people were families with children) in 2012.

People interested in supporting The Walk are encouraged to visit www.goodworkswalk.net or call 740.594.3339 to obtain further information on getting Walk sponsor packets. January 1st will mark the start of Good Works’ 33rd year of providing shelter for the rural homeless.
