WHAT is it all about
Each year, William's Walk benefits local families in need during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. A food drive is done to collect non-perishable food items, especially items for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. This occurs during the month immediately preceding Thanksgiving. The food collected is walked in a symbolic 1 mile walk to be donated on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving through Loaves and Fishes and Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte , North Carolina. The food is then shared with families in crisis during this time of year that can sometimes be very difficult on families in this situation.
