Walk for Warmth scheduled for Feb. 15. 

LUDINGTON — The Mason County Walk for Warmth event will take place on Saturday, February 15 from 10 a.m. to noon, beginning at Community Church, 109 N. Harrison St. Registration starts at 9 a.m. and lunch will follow the walk. 

Funds raised by pledges during Walk for Warmth stay in the county that they are raised and allow FiveCAP to help area families and senior residents in emergency situations when they are barely over the threshold to meet qualifications for state or federal assistance, or when state and federal funds are exhausted or delayed.  

To help ensure that funding is always available to keep the heat on for local residents that may fall through the cracks of other programs and are facing having their heat shut off, FiveCAP hosts annual Walk for Warmth events in Lake, Mason, Manistee and Newaygo counties to raise funds and public awareness. 

Community groups and individuals are asked for their support and participation. 

Organizers ask that participants get their friends, employers, families, co-workers, community and church groups involved with the event. 

“There’s no minimum donation amount to participate, and donations are accepted year-round,” said FiveCAP Executive Director Mary Trucks. “We and the people we help are so graciously appreciative. These funds are vital to many living in circumstances beyond their control and facing what could be a more tragic situation”. 

Direct contribution forms or pledge sheets are available at www.fivecap.org or the Mason County FiveCAP office (Main Office) located at 302 N. Main Street, Scottville. For more information, call (231) 757-3785.
