Hike for the Homeless to Benefit the Morningside Shelter!

Looking for an excuse to be outside this weekend enjoying Vermont’s beautiful Autumn weather? This Saturday, October 4 (rain date is Sunday) you can do just that while supporting a great cause! Our friends over at the Morningside Shelter in Brattleboro are hosting the 4th annual Hike for the Homeless on Mt. Wantastiquet in Hinsdale, NH.¬†Registration starts at 9:30 am and 12 noon.

This Hike is held to raise money that will help to house the homeless in Brattleboro and surrounding communities during the coming winter. You can either hike to the summit of Mt. Wantastiquet or take a stroll along the Connecticut River Trail at the base of the mountain. Participants are encouraged to raise funds and walk as a team or individually. The suggested minimum for individuals is $50 and teams is $250. The foliage right now is spectacular, so whatever route you choose to take, you’ll be in for some outstanding views.

Morningside Shelter offers extended stay housing for up to 29 individuals and families.  They also work with other organizations to provide services such as job placement, medical treatment, counseling, budget and nutrition management, education, childcare service, transition back into housing as tenants and more. The Morningside Shelter has been helping the homeless for over 30 years and is committed to serving the Brattleboro area.

As a furniture company, we believe that everyone deserves a place to stay and a bed to sleep in. We love the work that Morningside is doing and support the strides that they are making for the homeless community in the Brattleboro area.
