2019 CROP Hunger Walk – 50th Anniversary
Sunday, October 27, 2019
• 821 MILLION people around the world are HUNGRY
• 12% of U.S. households face food INSECURITY
Again, this year PCWS will walk and participate in the CROP Hunger Walk, sponsored by Church World Service (CWS) as part of the CWS Zero Hunger initiative. This year represents the 50th anniversary of the walk. If you’d like to walk, please visit our CROP Walk website and register as a walker. You can then share your link with friends and family and help raise money! We would strongly recommend collecting funds electronically.
If you’re unable to walk, and would like to donate, visit our CROP Walk Website to sponsor our team!
Please visit online to watch a great video on the history and importance of the mission. Five local food pantries will share 25% of the funds raised by the walk. If you can, please bring canned goods or other non-perishable foods when you come for registration, and those foods will be distributed to the five food pantries that same day.
This year’s CROP Walk will begin and end at First Congregational Church of Western Springs and PCWS will be the halfway point of this year’s walk. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. We’ll have a brief gathering at 1:00 p.m. and begin the walk by 1:15 p.m.
