Crop Walk 2016
Do you want to make a difference in world hunger and suffering? Did you know every 30 seconds a child dies from hunger in Africa, 90% of children have the HIV virus, and thousands more walk miles to rivers for water, food, and bathing?
In San Jose hundreds of families walk every day to soup kitchens and food pantries. Why not join over 20 local churches and hundreds of your neighbors who believe hunger is a crime against humanity.
In April, Wesley Church joined in the Annual CROP Walk to Stop Hunger. Save that afternoon to walk or pledge to walkers to raise funds for food programs locally and worldwide.
Where does the money go?
Locally, 25% to Sacred Heart Community Service and Second Harvest Food Bank. Globally, 75% to Church World Service for international development projects and relief due to war, famine, natural disaster (you can designate a country or program).
How can I help?
1. Sign up as a walker for 1 or 5 miles or any distance.
2. Sign up as a sponsor to pledge any amount.
3. Sign up as a walker and sponsor.
Where is the Walk?
The Walk begins at 1:00pm at Hoover Middle School, 1635 Park Ave. in San Jose, and proceeds around the beautiful homes of the Rose Garden area. Pit stops and water will be available. Free refreshments & a great feeling of saving a life.
Food for Thought:
"And what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, love kindness, and to Walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8).
"I want to share your bread with the hungry, open your homes to the homeless poor, remove the yoke of injustice and let the oppressed go free" (Isaiah 58).
