Students in Cazenovia College’s Equine Ambassador’s Club and “Introduction to Human Services” course are enthusiastic supporters of Cazenovia’s CROP Hunger Walk.
They have been soliciting fellow students to support them in their walk for hunger. The walk for Communities Responding to Overcoming Poverty, was established in 1946 by World Church Services to feed the starving Europeans.
Now, the money assists needy people all over the world, with 25-percent returning to the community’s CazCares and the Mustard Seed. The title CROP walk developed from, “We walk because they walk.” “They” refers to the world’s poor, who walk for their water, their food and their wood.
Everyone is welcome to walk at 1:30 p.m. this Sunday, Oct. 16, at St. Peter’s Church. Packets are available from any of the local churches, to sign-up friends and neighbors to support a walk. Registration will commence at 1 p.m.
If one cannot walk, they can still support the walkers. Also, it is possible to make a secure online donation by accessing churchworldservice.org; click “CROP Hunger Walk,” then “Cazenovia CROP Walk” and donate funds using Paypal or a debit account.
Another way to donate is to send a check made out to CWS/CROP and mail it to the Rev. Robin Flocken, at 10 Mill St. in Cazenovia. Be part of this effort for ending hunger one step at a time. Please join this vital CROP Hunger Walk.
