Although the turnout for Sundayâ€™s Hunger Walk was less than last yearâ€™s event, 77 walkers were successful in raising about $7,000 to help feed Lincoln County residents.
â€œWe were down about 30 percent, since we raised $10,000 last year,â€ said Susan Brymer, Executive Director of Christian Ministries.
Brymer is hopeful that some walkers have not collected all of their donations and the amount raised will increase.
â€œI am grateful for those who did come out and walk and for those who helped us raise donations,â€ Brymer said.
Those wanting to make a donation to the hunger campaign have several options for doing so: Mail donations to P. O. Box 423, Lincolnton, N. C. 28093
Drop off donations at the Ministries office on S. Academy Street in Lincolnton between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Drop off donations at the Lincolnton BB&T. Be sure to earmark the check as â€œHunger.â€
Brymer reported that those who came out and walked enjoyed a beautiful afternoon and had no problems.
