The Union Gospel Mission of Salem is holding Walk For Hope 2014 this Saturday, June 21.
The event starts at the downtown Salem UGM shelter at 9:30 a.m. and travels about five miles to end at the UGM’s Simonka Place in Keizer around 10:30.
There will be bounce houses, balloon art, face painting and lunch at Simonka Place. Lunch will be provided at 11:30.
UGM officials are hoping to have 400 walkers and to raise $35,000 with the event. The money will be used to provide meals and care at UGM for the summer. In the past two years, there has been an increase in services during the summer.
