The Midland Area CROP Hunger Walk

Posted: Updated:
Midland County -

The Midland Area CROP Hunger Walk is celebrating 40 years of walking to help end hunger one step at a time.   

The event is scheduled for Sunday, October 7th at 2:00 PM, starting from the Midland Center For The Arts.  Whether it's responding to flood and tornado damage in parts of the U.S., or helping to rebuild earthquake-damaged homes in Haiti, CROP Hunger Walks are making a difference.  This year our goal is to raise $50,000 right here in Midland County.

CROP Hunger Walk funds will benefit the overall work and ministry of Church World Service -- working around the world to help those in need help themselves through refugee assistance, self-help development programs, advocacy, and disaster relief.  25 percent of what is raised will help The Salvation Army, The Open Door, The Emergency Food Pantry Network, and Project Fresh in Midland County.

To help celebrate their 40th year, the Midland Area CROP Hunger Walk will have a special guest ambassador, Lou E. Loon, to start the walkers on their way.
