The 2nd Annual "Run for the Homeless" 5K and Mile will be on May 16, 2015, starting at 8am. All proceeds will go to benefit the Emergency Men and Women Shelter of The Salvation Army - Rome, GA. This past year alone, the Emergency Shelter housed over 3,740 nights of stay and 11,386 meals at our community-dining program. During this year, two new exciting things happened in our homeless services. First, in May of 2014, the Women’s Dorm room was opened that accommodates up to 4 women. Secondly, The Salvation Army has opened a new dining facility to allow our community guests to eat inside away from the elements. We will have food and activities for the whole family!
This year, we are partnering with GoGoRunning to provide a first-class and healthy experience for all ages. Besides participating in the event, if you or your organization would like more information about helping to sponsor this wonderful event, please email Captain Douglas McClure at firstname.lastname@example.org.
