CROP Hunger Walks are community fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service (CWS), an international relief, development, and refugee resettlement agency. Money raised by CROP Hunger Walks nationwide is used by CWS to provide food, medical care, disaster relief, and self-help development for needy people around the world!
How Funds Are Used Locally
We believe that charity begins at home, thus the first-fruits of the Walk stay locally. Twenty-Five percent of the money raised in our CROP Hunger Walk is distributed to hunger-alleviating agencies in the Muskegon Area! The agencies chosen by the local CROP Hunger Walk Planning Team to receive funds this year are:
MISSION FOR AREA PEOPLE
AGEWELL SERVICES (MEALS-ON-WHEELS)
SATURDAY BREAKFAST at FIRST CONGREGATIONAL UCC
We also believe that God’s compassion is for all people, so we help hungry and hurting people worldwide through Church World Service.
Last Year we raised $27,547 with over 240 participants!
This year our focus will be on youth involvement, encouraging groups of youth (3 youth = a group) to join us for the challenge of raising at least $250 for a matching gift of $125!
Join us for the 39th Muskegon CROP Hunger Walk as we seek to END HUNGER, ONE STEP AT A TIME!
