Feet in the Street at Crane’s Mill

On Monday, September 28, Crane’s Mill residents and staff were joined by Jack the Jackal for Feet in the Street at Crane’s Mill!

Feet in the Street is a campaign by Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey to raise awareness and dollars to end hunger and homelessness in New Jersey. The main event—a 2.5 or 5 mile walk—will take place on October 10 in Camden, New Jersey.

Crane’s Mill wanted to get in on the fun, so we held our own Feet in the Street walk this past Monday so our residents could enjoy a fun afternoon of exercise while helping the New Visions Day Shelter and other LSMNJ hunger and homelessness programs.

Below are some photos from the day, and be sure to visit the Feet in the Street web page for more information on this great cause.
