SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
We're excited to bring this national event to Berks! Join us February 25, as New Journey Community Outreach hosts the Coldest Night of the Year, in support of our work addressing food insecurity. This event is a family-friendly 2 & 5 km winterrific walk hosted in 20+ cities to raise money locally for people experiencing homelessness, hurt, and hunger. We invite you to team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good... because it’s cold out there. Visit www.cnoy.com/location/reading to learn more!
