HUDSON VALLEY, NY (April 6, 2012) – The Kiwanis Clubs of Callicoon, Monticello, Roscoe and Woodridge are participating with the Hudson River West Division, which is comprised of eight Kiwanis Clubs located in Orange, Sullivan and Ulster County, in Kiwanis Family Walks for Hunger on April 21 to benefit the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley.
Each year in April the Kiwanis Family comes together for the designated “Kiwanis One Day” for a project that will benefit the greater community.
In Orange County the walk will take place at Shannen Park. In Sullivan County it will start in Mountaindale at the Rails to Trails and in Ulster County it will take place at Berme Park.
Participants in the Kiwanis Family Walks for Hunger will include youth sponsored clubs, K-Kids, Builder’s Clubs and Key Clubs. Participation in these walks is open to the general public.
The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley was selected because hunger exists year round in all communities, and the Food Bank serves over 300 sites in their service areas and other counties in the Hudson Valley.
Registration for the Sullivan County walk begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Mountaindale Firehouse and the walk on Rails to Trails will begin at 10:00 a.m. The registration fee is one or more non-perishable food items and/or a monetary donation. Refreshments will be served at the firehouse after the walk.
If you cannot participate in the walk and would like to make a monetary donation make your check payable to Food Bank of the Hudson Valley with memo line on check notating Feinstein Foundation Challenge. This way the donation will be matched by the Feinstein Foundation.
Checks should be sent to Sue Sheehan, C/O Middletown Kiwanis Club, PO Box 752, Middletown, New York 10940. The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley does send a written acknowledgement of all donations made to them by check and/or credit card. You may also donate non-perishable food items for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley before and at our three different walk sites.
