Warm weather is on tap this weekend for what’s normally a cold-weather event that raises funds to warm hearts and heat homes.

The Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency’s 32nd annual Walk for Warmth will be held this Saturday at the Hartland Educational Service Support Center, aka the old Hartland High School.

The event is the non-profit’s premier fundraiser. It’s traditionally held every February but was moved to May due to the pandemic. Organizers decided to stick with the warmer date again this year.

Walk for Warmth brings the community together annually to raise funds that support local families who are struggling year-round. Officials say walk proceeds reduce the challenges some families face during the cold season, like having to choose between warmth or going into debt to meet their basic needs.

Walk for Warmth is a non-competitive, walk-what-you-can event. Festivities kick off at 8:30am. The event will again feature vendors, entertainment, and activities for kids around the track.
