Walk for Warmth

January 16 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Interfaith Action of Evanston, a consortium of diverse faith communities serving those experiencing homelessness and hunger, will hold its fourth annual Walk for Warmth on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, Jan. 16, 2022. This family friendly event has become an Evanston tradition and will kick off at 11 a.m. from the Hinman entrance of First United Methodist Church, 516 Church Street in Evanston.
The two-mile Walk for Warmth brings volunteers together to walk a circuit of downtown Evanston churches, each of which serves as a host to the IAE Overnight Shelter. Walkers raise money through donations and sponsorships in what is an ideal project for the MLK Day of Service, honoring Dr. King’s legacy and fight for economic justice.
The funds being raised will enable IAE to keep its shelter doors open every night from mid-October to mid-May, providing life-saving warmth to those without homes during the coldest months of the year. The money also helps fund Interfaith Action’s Hospitality Center and Weekend Morning Shelter, which offer safe and warm places for those who don’t have a home during morning hours seven days a week.
Participation in the Walk for Warmth on Wheels is open to anyone. Many of the more than 40 faith communities which comprise IAE will be assembling teams of walkers, including people of all ages.
Individuals interested in participating in the parade or donating to support it can find further information at Advance registration is strongly encouraged as there will be limited registration on-site the day of the event.
