Hunger Walk 2024: 40 Years of Making A Difference

LCR had 18 people come together for lunch and a walk on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in support of eliminating hunger in Georgia. Thanks to my co-chair Stephen Goodnough, to Jennifer Haehn for providing lunch, and to Mark Moeller and his friend Chip for providing music to get us ready to walk.

LCR had set a stretch fundraising goal of $7,500. Through the generous support of many LCR Members and others, our team collected over $11,000, or almost 50% greater than our goal. I believe that is the all-time record donation from LCR. Our top fundraiser was Rachel Thornton who collected $4,550. Through this tremendous outpouring of financial support, we retained our position as the top fundraising Lutheran Church in Georgia by the day of the walk.

The donations from the walk benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank (40%), Inspiritus (36%), and LCR Food and Shelter programs (24%). Thanks again to all who helped plan and implement the walk, all who participated in the walk to physically show their support, and all who donated or sponsored others for the walk. The caring and support for this need from the LCR family is truly amazing!
