This is your own self-organized walk! Here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):


  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

About Open Arms Mission of Welland

At Open Arms Mission, we want to ensure that no one goes hungry in our community. At our new low barrier, pay what you can grocery store and cafe, we will be providing groceries, freshly made light meals and snacks and other items to people in need in our community.


We are transforming our traditional food bank and drop in centre, to a place where people can be:


1. Be free from anxiety over where their next meal will come from. No more being told to wait. If you need food today, come today.


2. Be free to choose what is best for their needs, instead of being told what they can have.


3. Have a dignified environment. Instead of being intimidated by unfamiliar processes, people can feel comfortable getting food in a beautiful, accessible grocery store


4. Feel free from shame. Instead of feeling like they are taking away from someone who "needs it more," by allowing people to donate, we are offering the opportunity to contribute.
