BRISTOL, R.I. (AP) -- Religious leaders are set to lead people of all faiths in Bristol for a one-mile walk to raise money for a program that helps homeless veterans move into new, fully furnished homes.
The Faith Walk for Charity is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Colt State Park in Bristol. This year, the event will raise money for the Veterans Transitional Supportive Program of the Providence Veterans Administration Medical Center. The program helps formerly homeless veterans move into new homes.
The charity walk is led by clergy from Jewish, Catholic, Muslim, Baptist and Episcopal faiths.
The initiative has raised more than $110,000 since 2006. It donates all the money to the chose beneficiary.
