Couple raising money for Tabitha's Table by hiking 42 miles on the Appalachian Trail

October 17, 2012

After volunteering their time at Tabitha’s Table, handing out food and hygiene products to those in need, Scott and Angela Griffin wanted to do more.

The Smithsburg couple decided to raise money for the organization by hiking 42 miles from Pen Mar Park in Cascade to Harpers Ferry, W.Va., along the Appalachian Trail.

They begin their hike Saturday at 8 a.m., plan to sleep at Washington Monument State Park, and plan to end the hike Sunday at 4 p.m. To represent the cause, they are packing only half the normal amount of food.

All money raised by the couple will go to Tabitha’s Table to be used to buy groceries. Tabitha’s Table serves 100 to 130 families per week. The organization also gives care packages to assisted living facilities.
