Walking for clean water

          How far would you walk for a sip of water?  Maybe across the shopping mall?   On Sept. 30th we're gathering together with others in our Central Ky. community to WALK for a better world, to WALK for people who have to walk miles just to find clean water to drink.  Come out and WALK with us.  You'll be doing good and it's good for you!

         You will also be Walking to support the work of our local God's Pantry.  They still need to reach approximately 100,000 more people in need in Central and Eastern Ky!

         Thanks to everyone for the gifts they have already donated on line!  To date, the most ever at this time - a week before the Walk: $4,239.00!

          See you Sunday, Sept. 30th, 3:00 PM at 2nd Presbyterian Church.  Remember, NO FEE for registration.  The 3 mile experiential Walk begins at 3:30 PM.  Bring a non-perishable food item for God's Pantry!

Blessings,
   Judy

Walking together to take a stand

"Hunger: Just the Facts"
  (source: UN Food and Agriculture Org., US Dept. of Agriculture)
Worldwide: 98% of the world's hungry live in developing countries.

In the USA: 50.2 million Americans live in food-insecure households.
....and each one of us can make a difference in the lives of ALL our neighbors, near and far, by walking together to take a stand against hunger in our world.

The Greater Lex. CROP Hunger Walk is open to everyone concerned with the moral issues of hunger and poverty. There is NO registration fee when you arrive at 3:00 PM Sunday, Sept. 30th at Second Presbyterian Church, E.Main/Ransom St., Lex. KY. The 3 mile experiential Walk begins promptly at 3:30 PM.

Just bring at least one friend!, a non-perishable food item for God's Pantry (can meats and peanut butter are really needed), and your water bottle to be refilled at the water stop along the route. The Walk logo T-shirts will be available for sale too.

As of Sept. 10th, 30 churches/school groups/organizations have committed to 'Helping End Hunger One Step at a Time.' 11 Teams are already receiving on-line donations at www.cropwalkonline.org. WOW! $2,475 just now. (The on-line site is available through March 2013.)  You also have the option to set-up your own, personalized fundraising 'Team.' Just follow the simple instructions, which include Walk registration, at www.cropwalkonline.org.

Working together, we can help build a world where there is enough for all.

Abundant Thanks!
