We are hiking in Morningside Shelter's 1st annual Hike for the Homeless in memory of Mark Bennett, our father/husband/father-in-law/stepfather/brother/uncle/friend.
Mark cared deeply about affordable housing in the Brattleboro area, so we are hiking to raise funds that can help Morningside Shelter in its efforts to house the homeless. We will definitely collect any trash and recyclables along the way, as this was another of Mark's passions.
Morningside Shelter is the only year-round homeless shelter in southeastern Vermont. It has been operating at capacity for several years, as the need for shelter has only increased in our area. The waiting list is long, and the number of homeless families is on the rise.
Please consider making a donation to our Hike. Any amount would be appreciated. To make an even greater impact, you can join us for the Hike on October 8th and garner support from your own network of friends and family. We would love to hike beside you!

With many thanks,
The Re-MARK-able Bennetts
