PRLog - Nov. 30, 2011 - SAN GABRIEL, Calif. -- Students from Don Bosco Technical Institute (Bosco Tech) have invited students from several other local high schools to join them in a 16-mile walk through the San Gabriel Valley to raise funds for the homeless on Sunday, December 4, beginning at 8:15 a.m.
The Walk to End Hunger, hosted by Bosco Tech, is the final event in the school’s month-long Campaign to End Hunger that featured a 2,000-pound food drive to benefit the Shepherd’s Pantry food kitchen and Thanksgiving Goodness, an alumni-run program in which Bosco Tech students, alumni and volunteers prepared 3,200-sack lunches and distributed them to the homeless in downtown Los Angeles. All proceeds from the walk will benefit Family Promise and Catholic Worker, organizations that help low-income and homeless families in the San Gabriel Valley and the greater Los Angeles community.

“An important part of educating our students is to teach them about serving others, especially those who are less fortunate,” said Darlene Nichols, Bosco Tech’s director of service and action. “Young people trained in community service will continue to have a positive impact on others throughout their lives. We have invited several schools to join us (Alverno, Salesian, San Gabriel Mission, and St. John Bosco high schools) to increase funds raised for these worthwhile organizations.”

The walk’s circular route will begin at Bosco Tech’s Rosemead campus and travel northwest to checkpoints throughout Alhambra, before heading northeast to San Gabriel Mission, and finally heading south to Bosco Tech. For more information about the walk, contact Nichols at (626) 940-2138 or dnichols@boscotech.edu.
