Capital Area Community Services of Shiawassee County will host the 30th annual Walk for Warmth on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Shiawassee Council on Aging in Owosso. One-hundred percent of the event’s proceeds will be used to provide heat and related utility assistance to low-income families, seniors and those with disabilities who live in Shiawassee County.
Registration will begin at 9 a.m. on Feb. 22, and the three-mile walk will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Shiawassee Council on Aging, which is located at 300 N. Washington St. in downtown Owosso. Prior to the walk, breakfast will be served inside the Council on Aging, for a small donation.
The event will also include face painting, and the chance for walkers to interact and take pictures with Buckle Bear and other CACS friends dressed as a penguin, a fox and a snowman.
