COTS Walk in Burlington Vermont – May 2, 2015
BY Lisa Friedman
COTS is the Committee on Temporary Shelter for the Burlington area. It helps the needy with temporary housing needs and services. There will be a 3k walk starting from Battery Park in Burlington on Sunday May 3, 2015. The walk will begin at 2:00 as Sambatucada drummers lead 1,500 participants along the way down Church Street, along Main Street and through Burlington neighborhoods where a person in need would find resources. The walk will conclude with live music and ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s.
The event is to raise public awareness about homelessness and to support COTS shelters and services for Vermonters who are homeless or who are at risk for losing their homes
COTS hopes to raise $180,000 from this event and other events throughout 2015. To register or to donate, visit COTSOnLine.org. Please join Great American Dream Realty in thanking COTS for all they do to help people in the Burlington area.
