Bowie walk to raise money for Prince George’s County homeless services -- Gazette.Net


Residents can help raise money for homeless services in the county by registering for the Prince George’s County Cares to End Homelessness.

The event takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at Allen Pond Park, 3330 Northview Drive in Bowie. The walk is a community-based Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Walk, which are walks held across the county to raise money for homeless services in the communities that hold walks, such as helping the homeless find shelter or preventing a family from becoming homeless, said Laila Riazi, Community Crisis Services, Inc. director of development.

Walkers must register and pay $30 if 25 years and older or $20 if under 25 years old, Riazi said.

“All the money goes directly to the agencies and helps leverage additional resources for homeless services,” Riazi said.

The agencies involved in the walk include United Communities Against Poverty, Community Crisis Services, Inc., Laurel Advocacy and Referral Services and Catholic Charities, according to the Prince George’s County Cares news release. To register for the walk visit and search for PGCCares.
