The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2017

3 miles is a small distance to go to build hunger awareness in your own backyard. Hundreds of walkers from the community and area congregations will be traveling on a route through Olde Towne and Downtown Portsmouth on Saturday morning, April 29th. Festivities and sign-up begin at 10am. The walk itself starts promptly at 11am (beginning and ending at the Oasis building). These walkers will be getting sponsors for their efforts and will be donating all of the proceeds to Oasis Social Ministry, operating uninterrupted since 1970. Oasis has been continuously meeting the basic socio-economic needs of this region. Celebrating over 47 years of community service, Oasis was birthed by five local Catholic Parishes. Today it has evolved into an ecumenical multi-serving agency committed to helping individuals and families to meet their basic needs. Some of our statistics from the last year are: 9,000- individuals assisted through our food pantry. $306,000- Value of items given away by the thrift store. 185,000- Number of meals provided by the combined efforts of the food pantry and soup kitchen. $34,000- Estimated value of Holiday food and gifts given during Christmas and Thanksgiving. The walk route and how to get involved: It will start out at Oasis: 800 Williamsburg Ave, and continue downtown passing many sites significant to Oasis’s history and organizations that partner with us to assist to community in need : Third Baptist; two former sites of Oasis; Zion Baptist; and St. Paul’s Catholic Church; and then return to Oasis. A Route map is available in the photo section. To find out how to get involved, please contact Burgess Hodges at Oasis Social Ministry at (757) 397-6060 x205 or admin@oasissocialministry.org
