CROP walk - Church World Service

My church is participating this year in the CROP walk, an outreach of Church World Service. I attended our "Oneida Area Christian Churches" meeting last week, and was very impressed with the presentation from the gentleman from CWS (and from one of my own church members as well!) I've been participating in the CROP walk for years, but this was the first time I learned more about the program as a whole. They also shared with us some great resources about hunger to be used in worship, Sunday School, etc. I encourage you to check out Church World Service directly, or, you can also donate to my team! (after clicking the link, click on my name, Elizabeth, in the top right corner, or my team, to make donations.)

Crop Walk is a great program. My parish in New Jersey is participating as well.

As an aside, I wanted to mention an additional way to help alleviate world hunger; The Hunger Site. By a click of the mouse daily, folks can help feed the hungry, at no cost.

This isn't an either/or suggestion, btw. I hope folks donate to your Crop Walk team AND click over to The Hunger Site!
