Where does the money raised go?
A CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk is an annual event that combines fun and fundraising to raise money for hungry people throughout the world. Walkers invite friends to sponsor them with a contribution of $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, or more. For more info on CROP Hunger Walks, please visit http://cropwalk.org.
We are delighted to share good news! Helped by the special contributions in honor of the Golden Jubilee celebration of the ministries of Rev. Cleo Kottwitz, by the end of October, our interfaith 2017 CROP Hunger Walk had raised over $20,000, with some additional funds still “in the pipeline” (pledged but not yet received). This is a significant increase over last year’s Walk, which generated just over $16,000. Many thanks to all our walkers and their sponsors!
The CROP Hunger Walk ‘Top Fundraiser’ trophy is awarded this year to Missouri United Methodist Church.
This congregation raised $5,417 by November 1st.
We thank everyone for your generosity!
