The Thanksgiving Walk of Awareness helps ACCESS Soup Kitchen & Men’s Shelter provide food, supplies, services and shelter throughout the year for those in need and brings awareness to homelessness. This is our largest annual fundraiser!

In the past year, your contributions to ACCESS:
-       Helped maintain the soup kitchen and shelter open throughout the pandemic
-       Allowed us to give about 18,000 meals to Frankfort residents, that’s 345 average meals a week 
-       Helped 60 men gain permanent housing 
-       And continues to aide in hiring capable staff

This year, the 27th Annual Thanksgiving Walk of Awareness for Frankfort’s ACCESS Soup Kitchen and Men’s Shelter will be in honor of past Executive Director: JAMES C. BARNETT, who passed away in February 2022 due to COVID, and his exemplar dedication to ACCESS.
