was held on on Sunday, October 20, 2013
at First Parish in Concord
There were 350 walkers, who raised a total of $52,291. They represented 23 faith communities, 2 schools, and 9 towns. Thanks to all for your participation!
Photos from the walk are now available.
You can still sponsor a walker, or just donate to the 2013 CROP Walk online through the Concord CROP page of the Church World Service web site.
CROP Hunger Walks are "Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty"-- neighbors walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world.
Funds raised by the Concord area CROP Walk go to Church World Service (CWS) for worldwide emergency relief of disasters, such as floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes; for refugee aid; and for fighting the root causes of hunger through community development programs in 80 underdeveloped countries. In addition, one quarter of these funds raised will provide substantial contributions to the ten local supper/food pantry programs that we support.
See the Crop Walk brochure for examples of CWS Development programs.
Thank you to our corporate sponsors for supporting the 2013 Concord CROP Walk
