Help the Homeless 2011

07.12.2011

For the last 23 years, Fannie Mae has sponsored the Help the Homeless Program. “it has become the nation’s largest fundraising collaboration focused on homelessness”.  Every year Martha’s Table is one of the beneficiaries of that program.  We focus on recruiting walkers to register to walk for Martha’s Table.  Last year, Martha’s Table recruited 2,600 walkers and this year our goal is 3000!  If we recruit 3000 we will receive a $50,000 grant from Fannie Mae.  The only way we can reach that goal is with your participation!

There are several ways to participate:

Walkathon: walk on the National Mall on November 19th with 1000’s of others.

Mini-Walk: coordinate a mini-walk with your church, business, community group or school or join Martha’s Table for one of our monthly walks. You can find the dates on our website.

Virtually Walk: register to “walk” with your mouse.

Donate: Every donation will receive a 20% bump from Fannie Mae.

Registration fees are $20 for youth 25 and under and $30 for adults. Virtual Walkers pay $30.

For more information about any of these opportunities, please contact Nadia Sicard at nsicard@marthastable.org or visit the Martha’s Table Help the Homeless page.
