Metro Washington Council Union Cities Mobilizer Chris Garlock and his wife Lisa began their 200-mile walk in Wales yesterday; in addition to celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary, the two are walking to raise money for the MWC Community Services Agency's Emergency Assistance Fund , which assists hundreds of DC-area families annually with emergency financial needs. Donate what you can: .25/mile = $50; .50/mi = $100; $1/mi = $200; or whatever amount you like, "it will go to help prevent utility cut-offs and evictions, provide needed prescriptions, transportation so members can keep working, food, child care and other needs," says CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy.
