1 North Ave, Burlington, VT

Join COTS on May 7th at Battery Park from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, for our annual COTS Walk, where we take a 3-mile trek around downtown Burlington starting from Battery Park, following the route a person who is homeless might travel to receive shelter and services. This is the one day of the year that we open our shelters to the community so people can see how their pledges are put to use. Registration opens at 1p.m.; the walk begins at 2 p.m.  The walk starts from Battery Park and heads down Church Street Marketplace along Main Street and then into surrounding neighborhoods. Along the way, walkers are invited into COTS shelters to see COTS facilities “up close and personal.” The walk takes about an hour and concludes back at Battery Park where walkers are met with music, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and other free refreshments.

To get involved at the COTS Walk, contact Sian Leach, our Community Outreach and Volunteer Specialist at 802-540-3084, Ext. 207 or email
