Fill the Pantry Glow Walk 2019!

Saturday, October 19, 2019

Note: Due to concerns about EEE, the Fill the Pantry event tomorrow will be held INDOORS. There will be lots of food, music, games, glow sticks, and fun! Come grab a swag bag, have dinner, dance, play games, paint a t-shirt with glow-in-the-dark paint, and support your neighbors in need!

Registration Starts at 5:00pm, Walk Begins at 6:00 pm

This year’s Fill the Pantry Walk will be held on Saturday, October 19th with registration starting at 5:00pm. We will once again be walking on the scenic Columbia Greenway Rail Trail. However, this year we are planning a GLOW walk! We will have glow sticks, swag bags, and t-shirts (while supplies last) and a door prize.

How far you walk is optional. Walk all the way to Shaker Road for a three mile round trip, or just to the tin bridge where a surprise awaits for a one mile walk, or skip the walk entirely and just join us for the after party. We’ll start and end at St. John’s on Broad Street. Stay after the walk for a fire pit with hot dogs, music, donuts, and refreshments.

Participate alone or with a group of friends. Challenge your office or organization to form a team. Issue a friendly challenge to a “rival” group. Bring your children as walkers, in strollers, or riding bicycles and tricycles. There will be a prize for the best decorated bike.

You can make an individual donation or find sponsors to support your walk. Even if you can’t participate on walk day you can still support the event by making a donation. This is our largest fundraiser for the year and we need your help to make it a success! Last year’s walk raised over $5,000 to feed the hungry here in Westfield. Help us raise even more this year so that we can meet the increasing local need!

If you have questions or are interested in sponsoring the event please contact Rebecca at director@westfieldfoodpantry.org
