The 27th annual ‘Walk for Warmth’ – sponsored by Community Action – will take place on Saturday (February 25th) at six locations including the St. Joseph County Grange Fairgrounds in Centreville.  The start time is 9 a.m.

The Walk for Warmth is a pledge-based walk that raises funds to provide emergency heating assistance in Barry, Branch, Calhoun and St. Joseph counties.  All Walk funds raised in a community stay in that community to help local residents keep their heat on.  The fundraising goal for this year’s Walk activity is $50,000.

You can help Community Action by collecting pledges for your local Walk as an individual walker, or by starting a team in your church, school, or organization. Contact Community Action at 1-877-422-2726 to obtain pledge sheets and more information or go online at www.caascm.org. If you are unable to participate in the Walk but still want to help, please mail in your donation to Community Action Walk for Warmth, PO Box 1026, Battle Creek, MI 49016. Community Action ensures that your donation will remain in the community of your choice, so please designate the community to which you would like your donation credited.
