Walk for Warmth 2012 Summary: Thank you! Posted: May 09, 2012

The communities we serve continue to amaze us. Though the tide is slowly turning in metro Detroit, many are still struggling. The neighbors and friends of those who are struggling showed unyielding support this year by participating in or sponsoring OLHSA’s Walk for Warmth events.

The events raised a combined $156,284 towards OLHSA’s Emergency Utility Assistance Program. The funds help those in Oakland and Livingston Counties who are facing heat shut-offs. A mild winter, believe it or not, did not deter many from needing help this past year, where funds from the 2011 Walk for Warmth events helped 1,500 people stay warm.

We hope to help more people this coming year. It’s not too late to donate. 100 percent of donations go directly back to our communities, so you can feel good about keeping your contribution very, very close to home. Click here to donate.

Thank you, Walk for Warmth supporters, from OLHSA team members and board members. You are making a difference.
