Sarnia’s annual ‘Stand Up Against Poverty Rally’ returns to the steps of City Hall on Friday, Oct. 18.
The rally features personal stories told by people who have experienced poverty and offers support to help those struggling.
Living in poverty limits a person’s mental and physical health, limits education and employment opportunities, and impacts dignity and self-respect.
The one-hour event begins at 12 noon and is organized by the local Poverty Reduction Network.
The event is held to mark the United Nations’ International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, which began in 1993.
Donated lunch money to support The Inn of the Good Shepherd.
