RTN Federal Credit Union and RTN GoodWorks Foundation presented a check for $21,000 to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless on September 18. The funds are proceeds raised from Walk Home 2018, which took place in June.
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 simultaneously in three locations — Danvers, Dorchester, and Waltham.
Walk Home funds are collected through the RTN GoodWorks Foundation and donated to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Dorchester and Waltham, and support the work of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. RTN has raised close to $180,000 since the inception of Walk Home in 2011.
We’re so grateful for the efforts of so many people throughout the Credit Union who contributed in so many ways, and came together to help the estimated 42,000 children and teens who will experience homelessness in Massachusetts this year.
Walk Home 2019 will take place on Sunday, June 9, 2019.
