This Thanksgiving morning, give back before giving thanks! VEAP is pleased to announce we are participating in the annual Walk to End Hunger event at the Mall of America. Join our CEO, Joe McDonald, and Senior Advancement Associate, Kial Nelson, on a walk around the mall. This low-key, high-fun event is a great way to organize friends and families and support VEAP’s mission to end food insecurity in our community.
The walk will feature an easy, indoor route (no cold weather to fight off), live music, activities and entertainment for the whole family, and t-shirts and other prizes. The walk is very family-friendly, with games, face painting, a photo booth, live music featuring Kat Perkins and much more. If you raise $100 or more for VEAP, you’ll score a Hunger Hero t-shirt for free! We encourage you to walk with family, friends, or co-workers to raise money for VEAP’s cause. It’s simple and feels great!
