Greater Lexington CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk
Sunday, Sept. 28th. Second Presbyterian Church, Ransom/E. Main
3:00 PM registration 3:30 PM--3 mile experiential Walk
Special Guests : Rev. John McCullough, CEO and President Church World Service and Mr. John Dolon, KY-IN Field Director for CWSInterested in learning more about local and global hunger issues? Astonished that many of our neighbors worldwide do not have access to clean, safe water! Wonder what other problems contribute to our sisters, brothers and children living in poverty---here KY and around the world? AND....you want to actively "do something" to help end it?
YOU CAN... by taking one step at a time with your Central KY friends and neighbors. Sponsored by Church World Service (CWS), the CROP Hunger Walk is the oldest hunger- fighting fundraising and educational event in the US. More than 1600 communities gather together to WALK in solidarity for those in need of basic, human rights. We are a very diverse mix of faiths, cultures, individuals, groups, schools, organizations from 6 Central Ky counties that work together every Fall. 25% of the money we raise is given to our local God's Pantry Food Bank and the remainder to CWS to support the life-saving global work. Rest assured, the work of Church World Service is based on a 'hands-up' model (get to the root of the problem); not a 'hand-out' focus. Discover more-www.churchworldservice.org.
