On Sunday, May 5, 2013, The Pulse Network Team participated in Project Bread’s 45th Walk for Hunger. Project Bread, a Massachusetts non-profit organization, puts on the Walk for Hunger every spring in order to raise money for Massachusetts families who struggle to put food on the table every day. This year, the Walk for Hunger raised $3.1 million which is donated directly to over 430 emergency food programs that support families in crisis.
The Pulse Network Team joined over 30,000 individuals in the 20-mile walk through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown and Cambridge, raising close to $1,500 – enough to provide 72 families with a hot meal and a week’s worth of groceries through a weekly supper program.
Unfortunately, the number of Massachusetts residents who are at risk for hunger increases every year. Through supporting local organizations like Project Bread, The Pulse Network aims to provide assistance for our own neighbors and members of our communities who are in need.
Thank you to everyone who donated to our effort this year! To see pictures of The Pulse Network team participating in the Walk for Hunger, click here.
