Crop Hunger Walk
The Pullman-Moscow CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of $19,000 to help stop hunger and poverty here in our community and around the world, through self-help initiatives.
This year Pullman-Moscow and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme “Ending hunger one step at a time.” Many of the CROP Walkers will be wearing T-shirts, proclaiming their solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live — as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks, and meal sites here in the U.S. These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks.
Haiti is one part of the world where CROP Hunger Walks are making a big difference. In the aftermath of the killer earthquake, Church World Service was there with much-needed emergency assistance. With the recovery effort in full swing, CWS is helping families and communities to rebuild homes, food supplies and livelihoods.
CROP Hunger Walks also play a role in the U.S., helping communities ravaged by floods and tornadoes to recover.
Even if you cannot walk with us, or if you can’t walk at all, everyone is able to make and/or request donations on line using credit cards that will be assigned to the church’s team. Participants who cannot do the walk can be “spirit” walkers. This does not commit you to doing the 10K walk. If you cannot join us on October 9 but want to participate, you can do your own CROP walk prior to October 9th in full or by shorter segments that total 10K.
Remember, all donations must be turned in with a donor envelope (cash or checks) the day of our Walk, or you can leave your envelope in the church office or mailbox. The on-line donations have a little longer to be made. Please urge your donors to make their gift before the end of October. We need to raise $19,000 from Moscow and Pullman participants, so we need your help in person and on line.
Let’s team up to create a dynamic result for the 2011 CROP Walk.
