Westfield’s Walking To Help Homeless

Westfield High is holding a Help the Homeless Walk as part of its Homecoming Parade, this Friday, Oct. 19, at 4:15 p.m., and is inviting all its feeder schools in the Westfield Pyramid to join in. It’s sponsored by the school’s Interact Club and SGA.

The cost to walk in Westfield’s Help the Homeless Parade Walk is $20, youth (25 and below); and $30, adults. All walkers receive a free T-shirt and registration fees are tax deductible. To register, go to http://tinyurl.com/WestfieldParadeWalkforHomeless.

Fannie Mae’s Help the Homeless Program helps raise awareness and funds to prevent homelessness and hunger in the local community. All online registrations will benefit WFCM’s (Western Fairfax Christian Ministries) food pantry which provides food to those struggling with poverty and hunger in Centreville, Chantilly, Clifton and Fairfax Station.

Student government leaders, spirit teams and school clubs are invited to join this effort. Students are encouraged to make posters or signs to carry in the parade to show their school spirit and their support of preventing homelessness and hunger.
