Local attorney Robert Messick has announced his plans to hike all 2,190 miles of the Appalachian Trail. We are honored that he has chosen to use his journey to raise funds and awareness for Talbot Interfaith Shelter!

Raised in Easton in a family that taught him to appreciate the outdoors, Robert continued the tradition by taking his children, Marisa and Robbie, on numerous hikes and camping trips.

Robert leaves mid-April and will take approximately five months to complete the trail spanning fourteen states from Georgia to Maine along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains.

Visit the Long Walk Home page on our website to find out how you can follow Robert's journey.

He has set a fundraising goal of $35,000, and we need YOUR help to reach that goal. Robert will be doing all the hard work, but you can support him by taking the simple step of donating today!

Just $27 can provide one night of shelter, three meals, and access to services for a man, woman or child in need in Talbot County.

The Talbot Interfaith Shelter is a 501c(3) voluntary interfaith-based service organization in Talbot County, Maryland. We are dedicated both to providing safe, temporary shelter to men, women, and children who lack adequate housing, and to raising awareness of the issues of homelessness in our community.
