Friends Walk

Friends Walk
Each fall since 2011 Time Out for Moms council members have partnered with Good Shepherd Lutheran School to reach out to the hurting in our community. The children get pledges and then walk on a Friday afternoon to raise money for Friends of Abused Families of Washington County.
Children, teachers, parents, pastors, council members, representatives from Friends and volunteers from Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School volunteer to walk for the shelter. Their joyful voice raise in song before the walk, and their joyful cheers fill the air when they return. The roar is deafening as the donation thermometer reveals the donation totals. Tie blankets made by the upper grade students and care bags made by the primary grades are diplayed and sent off with the Friends' representatives to distribute in the future.

Over $8100 have been raised by the children and every dollar has been given to Friends. Recently the money has helped fund an art therapy program for the children entering the shelter. 

Parents of children are welcome to walk or to chaperone. We remind parents that they need to take the volunteer class prior to the day, whether they walk or chaperone.
