Letter to the Editor– RTN Walk Home 2017
WALTHAM, MA (July 12, 2017) — To the Editor:
RTN Federal Credit Union extends its sincere thanks to the walkers, volunteers, donors and businesses who participated in our seventh annual Walk Home, Sunday, June 11 in Waltham, Dorchester and Danvers. The event was a huge success. With your help, to date we have raised more than $22,000. These funds will go to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Dorchester, and Waltham, and support the work of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. Contributions will continue to come in over the next several weeks. Walk Home focuses attention on the sad realization that there are an estimated 42,000 teens and kids who will experience homelessness in Massachusetts this year.
