Interfaith Homeless Outreach Council’s Mall Walk for the Homeless
On Sunday, February 24, 2013, hundreds of participants participated in the Interfaith Homeless Outreach Council’s (IHOC’s) Mall Walk for the homeless at the Voorhees Town Center
The Interfaith Homeless Outreach Council goal was $25,000 to provide specialized job counseling and life skills education for the homeless men who will be participating in IHOC’s Homeless Hospitality Network. In these difficult financial times, the funds raised are especially important so that IHOC can help get the homeless men back on their feet.
The Mall Walk participants walked a half mile course within the Voorhees Town Center. Prizes were awarded for the volunteers who crossed the finish line 2, 3, or 4 times and for anyone raising $100. Prizes were also awarded to St. Michael’s Lutheran Church’s Youth Group for the group raising the most money and to Abby Gess for the individual who raised the most money.
After registering around 1:00 PM for the Mall Walk, the walkers were treated to the vibrant sounds of Three Good Men Barber Shop Quartet and were entertained by face painters and Kapo’s Gang clowns. At 2:00 PM, the Phillies Phanatic accompanied by local clergy kicked off the Mall Walk.
Total net profit from the walk was $19,380. The total number of walkers was 188; which included 10 groups (96 people) and individual walker of 92. Three walkers raised over $500, fifteen walkers raised over $200, and seventeen walkers raised over $100.
