The Human Relations Department is sponsoring its 7th annual March for Homeless Children as part of the Winston-Salem Holiday Parade on Saturday, Dec. 5.
The march will raise awareness for the plight of homeless children. According to Project Hope, in May 2009 more than 300 local children were living in shelters. Even more have been identified in temporary situations, and 95 preschool-age children are homeless.
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 of clothing and school supplies.
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.
For more information, call City Link at 727-8000.
