RTN Federal Credit Union and RTN GoodWorks Foundation present $20,844 to Mass. Coalition for the Homeless
WALTHAM, MA (October 29, 2019) — RTN Federal Credit Union and RTN GoodWorks Foundation presented a check for $20,844 to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless at the Foundation’s Golf Tournament on October 7 at Oakley Country Club. The funds are proceeds raised from Walk Home 2019, a 5K benefit walk, which took place in June.
Walk Home, the Credit Union’s signature fundraising event, brings together RTN members and staff, along with community residents, local and state dignitaries and politicians, and business sponsors. 5K Walk events were held simultaneously in Danvers, Dorchester, and Waltham.
“We are proud that since 2011, Walk Home has raised more than $200,000 to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Dorchester and Waltham,” says Joan Kuhn, Chair of the Board of Directors, RTN GoodWorks Foundation. Walk Home funds help support the Coalition and its A Bed for Every Child initiative, as well as programs that provide children with winter coats, hats and mittens and new beds and bedding, and help transition hundreds of families from homelessness to housing.
“We are grateful to RTN’s continued hard work and ongoing generosity through the annual Walk Home event to help us help homeless teens, individuals and families,” says Robyn Frost, Executive Director, Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless.
Walk Home 2020 will take place on Sunday, June 14, 2020.
