will be held on on Sunday, October 23, 2016
at First Parish in Concord
You can sponsor a walker, or just donate to the CROP Walk online through the Concord CROP page of the CROP Hunger Walk web site. Walkers can also accept cash or checks. Checks should be made payable to CWS/CROP.
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 30 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.
Each walker who registers online and raises $150 online by October 7, 2016 will receive a special edition CROP T-Shirt. These will be distributed at the walk to those who earned them. This program is in addition to our 20+ Club T-Shirt program.
Thank you to our corporate sponsors for supporting the 2015 Concord CROP Walk
