On September 19, RTN Federal Credit Union and RTN GoodWorks Foundation presented a check for $24,379 to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. The funds are proceeds raised from Walk Home 2016, which took place in June.
“We are grateful to RTN’s continued hard work and ongoing generosity through the annual Walk Home event to help us help homeless teens, individuals and families,” says Coalition Executive Director Robyn Frost. “These funds go directly to help our prevention, direct services, and legislative advocacy efforts, and support our mission to eradicate homelessness from the Commonwealth.”
Walk Home, the Credit Union’s signature fundraising event, brings together RTN members and staff, along with community residents, local and state dignitaries and politicians, and business sponsors. 5K Walk events are held in Danvers, Dorchester, and Waltham—three communities RTN serves.
“We are honored to partner with the Coalition and proudly contribute to its important work on behalf of the homeless,” says Peter Cole, Board Member of RTN Federal Credit Union, Board Chair of RTN GoodWorks Foundation, and Quality Review Specialist, Quality & Patient Safety at Lawrence General Hospital.
Walk Home 2017 will take place on Sunday, June 11, 2017.
