KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Friday is Good Friday and that means people will be hitting the streets of Kalamazoo to raise awareness about the homeless.
Several local churches and organization have planed a prayer walk that will show the suffering homeless people in Kalamazoo face everyday.
During the walk participants will stop at seven downtown locations to sing for and pray with the homeless and others who are struggling.
We spoke with one of the volunteer organizers about how big the issue of homelessness is in our community.
"It's a tremendous issue. You can see it here and at the Gospel Mission and other places everyday," said community volunteer Jim Mosby.
The walk will start at 10:00 a.m. at the Ministry With Community on North Church Street and will last about an hour.
Participants are asked to gather for registration at 9:45 a.m.
