Kent CROP Hunger Walk
Every October We participate in Kent CROP Hunger Walk
Neighbors together raising funds to end hunger in our community and around the world. Your participation impacts individuals and families in more than 30 countries. In many developing nations, people walk as many as 6 miles a day to get food and water. One in 9 people worldwide lack access to clean water and a healthy diet. We walk to be in solidarity with their struggle.
75% of the money collected will go to worldwide efforts of Church World Service. For example, working with communities to help build sand dams that provide water, giving micro-nutrient packets to feed children or tools and seeds to help keep a family fed and healthy.
25% will stay in Kent benefiting three local agencies:
Kent Community Supper, which feeds dinner each Monday night to anyone who comes to Kent Lutheran Church
HOME, a homeless outreach program that offers a place to sleep for the night, a dinner, breakfast the next morning and a sack lunch
Kent Food Bank.
Please join us. Be a Walker. Be a Donor.
Together we can make a difference one step at a time!
