The Human Relations Department is sponsoring its 6th annual March for Homeless Children as part of the Winston-Salem Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 6.
The march will raise awareness for the plight of homeless children, said Wanda Allen-Abraha, the human relations director. "Homelessness does not just affect adults. Anytime a parent loses a home their children are homeless, too."
This is the fourth year the march has been incorporated into the Holiday Parade. Representatives of Project Hope (a program offered by the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools that addresses the needs of homeless children and their families) will be on hand to accept donations.
Residents interested in participating in the march to show their support for homeless children should meet at 4:30 p.m. at the Center City West parking garage across from the Chamber of Commerce Building on Fourth Street.
