It’s the 25th anniversary of the Walk for Warmth program. Corsair Robotics 2612 is fundraising again this year in an effort to help keep the community warm during the winter months. Some families in the Waterford School District are direct recipients of this program that allows residents of Oakland and Livingston counties to access the Emergency Utility Assistance program when faced with a utility shut-off notice.
This week, our team will be at Waterford Mott High School with blue buckets and star balloons to collect donations for the cause. Last year, we were able to raise $350. With the generosity of our school, we’re hoping to raise even more this year.
Walk for Warmth, hosted by Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) and presented by Genisys Credit Union, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 6 at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills. Registration begins at 8 am, although you can register online and secure your Walk for Warmth T-shirt. At the event, participants can walk around the mall, which is 0.8 miles long, while jamming out to some live music by The Genisys Band. Other entertainment includes balloon animals, face painting, and more. Our team even plans to be there with our OCCRA robot.
We hope to see you there, and thank you for supporting this great cause!
