We encourage anyone who leads their congregation or group's team to attend (or send someone in your place) to collect needed materials for the walk, learn about programs supported by the Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk, meet other hunger leaders in the area, and learn some new skills and hear some tips on effective fundraising so you can help us meet our goal of $30,000 to help that many more people struggling with hunger both here in Washtenaw County and around the world!
WALK DAY INFORMATION:
Join us for the 45th Annual Ann Arbor CROP Hunger Walk. CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by religious groups, businesses, schools and others to raise funds to end hunger in the U.S. and around the world. More than 1,600 walks take place across the U.S. annually- this historic Ann Arbor 5 mile walk has happened annually since 1975 and has raised over $3 million. Last year, about 20 groups walked and raised over $20,000.
75% of funds raised will be granted to Church World Service and their partner agencies. The remaining 25% will be granted to various local hunger and poverty relief organizations (Emmanuel House Home for the Elderly, Avalon Housing, Growing Hope, Community Action Network (CAN) of Ann Arbor, Packard Health). Additionally at the event, we will be collecting non-perishable food items. These items will be donated to a local food pantry.
This walk is great for individuals of all ages and philosophical or religious backgrounds. Post walk snacks will be provided during social hour, as well as fun activities for children.
Join the hundreds of individuals and organizations committed to community action, hunger relief, and poverty eradication! You can end hunger one step at a time by:
1) Walking individually or forming a team.
2) Volunteering prior to and during the event.
3) Donating non-perishable food items at the event.
