48TH ANNUAL HUNGER WALK
Thursday, April 14, 2022 @ 8:10am
On Holy Thursday, the 48th Annual Hunger Walk will take place as the Bishop Hendricken community comes together to stand in solidarity with, and raise funds for, the poor, marginalized, and food insecure of Rhode Island. The morning will begin with a prayer service for Ukraine at 9am in St. Kevin Church. Following the service, all students, faculty, and staff will start out on the 10K walk through Warwick, demonstrating to the community that Hendricken doesn’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk.
As part of the Hunger Walk, we are asking every family, faculty, and staff member for a $20 donation to benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, Amos House, and Emmanuel House, and other local agencies. Donations will be accepted in homeroom and online, here.
All students should report to school for homeroom at 8:10am. There will be no morning academies. Following the walk, students will be dismissed at 12pm.
St. Kevin School students and staff will join the walk. All Catholic parochial schools of Warwick and West Warwick — St. Rose of Lima School, St. Peter School, and St. Joseph School — will join the prayer service virtually. All are invited to join us on the St. Kevin website, here.
