This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Walk for Hunger. Patrick Hughes (left), father of Hairpin/HHD’s Kristen and Brendan along with their brother Joe, started the Walk and Project Bread while he was a priest at the Paulist Center in Boston. The fact that a Catholic priest had three kids is a story for another day. But if you met their mom, Marianne, you’d understand. He died in 1980.
We had a blast working with Rogerson Communities to make it easier for elders and low-income individuals to connect to housing and services.
