This is the fifth year that Church World Service will sponsor a CROP Hunger Walk here on the Peninsula. Church World Service is an international relief, development and refugee resettlement agency. There are 36 member denominations in Church World Service, and both UCC and Disciples are members. CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. CROP Hunger Walks are community fund-raising events and are held every year in 1000 communities across our nation. In the last 20 years, CROP Hunger Walks have raised more than $294 million to provide food, medical care, disaster relief, and self-development for needy people around the world, and around the corner. 25% of what we raise will stay right here in our own community.
The San Francisco and Peninsula CROP Hunger Walk will be held on Sunday Oct. 8, 1-4 p.m. Nealon Park in Menlo Park. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
