Carmen Gentry Pearson from Community Connection explains the impact events like the Union County Walk For Wamrth have on individuals and families facing home heating emergencies during winter. The 9th Annual Union County Walk For Warmth is scheduled for Saturday, February 11th, at the Senior Center in La Grande.

Walkers, runners, and other participants during the event will be raising funds to support the community members that may fall between the cracks when applying for heating assistance programs provided by grant funding.
