Pierce School Students Paint Signs for Walk for Hunger
A group of seventh and eighth graders at the Pierce School in Brookline, painted signs that will encourage participants as they complete the 20-mile Walk for Hunger route. Over 40,000 Walkers are expected to step out and raise nearly $4 million for hunger relief and prevention at Project Bread’s 44th annual Walk for Hunger on Sunday, May 6th. The route weaves through Boston, Brookline, Newton, Watertown, and Cambridge, and includes entertainment and free snacks along the way. These signs are among the 320 hand painted signs of encouragement that will hang along the route.
