Walk Benefits People who are Homeless in Franklin, Grand Isle Counties

ST. ALBANS, Vt. - A walk in St. Albans Saturday benefited people who are trying to overcome homelessness.


The 5th annual Tim’s House Walk to End Homeless at Collins-Perley Sports Complex is meant to bring awareness, compassion and understanding to homelessness in Franklin and Grand Isle counties.


It raised money for the Samaritan House and Tim’s House, a shelter for people moving from homelessness to stability.


All of the proceeds go directly to helping people with that transition.


“Case management, assistance with housing, with food stamps, with other agencies to get the total wrap services that somebody in a homeless situation would need,” said Alicia Gay, executive director, Samaritan House.


Gay says the fundraising goal was $10,000.
