HIKE FOR SHELTER presented by UnitedHealthcare

Benefiting: SHELTER, Inc. of Contra Costa County

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2014  from 8:00am -3:00pm


SHELTER, Inc. is hosting its Fifth Annual Hike for SHELTER to end homelessness in Contra Costa County on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at Mt. Diablo State Park in Danville.

Hello Friends --

Please help us or even better -- join us!  Come hike on Saturday Oct. 19 with us (we are doing the easy short one:) and help raise money for this organization that truly makes a difference in the lives of people who find themselves in a situation where they have no place for their family to live. 

Grateful Gatherings has helped furnish some of the places that this organization has provided for homeless families -- and it truly is an amazing effort worth supporting.  They provide emergency shelter and eventually long-term housing.  But most importantly, they are committed to keeping families togetether, helping with developing skills and self-sufficiency and restoring dignity. 

We'd love to have you join us...or if you can't supporting our efforts.  Please don't feel obligated (I get a ton of these requests too:)  But if it works right now -- GREAT and THANK YOU!!!  Frank, Donna, Sydney and Callie

A post-hike celebration will follow complete with lunch, music, crafts, local celebrity speakers and fundraising prizes. Your generous support will help us increase awareness and raise funds for the thousands of homeless families in Contra Costa County.
