Crop Hunger Walk Results

The Crop Hunger Walk was held on October 11 in Webster Groves.  Parkway had 31 walkers and raised $3,400 for Church World Service to equip farmers around the world to secure the tools, seeds and skills to support their families and sell their produce to their neighbors.  25% of the proceeds remain in St. Louis for use by Operation Food Search and Webster-Rock Hill Ministries.                 Parkway was the top fund raiser of all the churches and organizations in St. Louis.  Parkway member Karen Boyd raised the most funds of all the walkers in St. Louis ($1,690).  Thanks to all who walked and/or supported walkers!

It’s not too late to fight hunger!

Crop Hunger Walk This Sunday (10/11)

Show your commitment to ending hunger in our country and the world! The Crop Walk to end hunger steps out at 1:30 on Sunday at Eden Seminary. Join the 13 Parkway members currently signed up to walk the one mile or three mile route. They already have sponsors for more than $1,200.

Or, sponsor one of these walkers by donating in their name. To walk or to donate go online to www.crophungerwalk.org. Once there, click on Missouri and then click on Metro St. Louis and then on Parkway UCC. Then you can choose to become a walker or to donate. You will find the names of all the Parkway walkers and you can select who you would like to sponsor. Then enter you credit card information. If you don’t want to do this online, simple make a check payable to CWS/CROP and give it or cash to your walker this Sunday.

The annual St. Louis Metro CROP Hunger Walk will take place at Eden Seminary on Sunday afternoon, October 11. Parkway will have a team of walkers who will recruit sponsors who will donate in the walker’s name to Church World Service to support programs to end hunger around the world. We need walkers and we need sponsors. Many of you will be contacted in the next couple of weeks to become a walker or a sponsor. There will be a signup sheet for walkers in the Gathering Space. For more information see Team Coordinator Tom Tupper (trtupper@yahoo.com) Tom Tupper: trtupper@yahoo.com | 636-458-3669

Be a part of the phenomena! Fight hunger! Last year we had a large team of walkers and raised over $1500 as a team. That means that we raised enough money to provide 4,000lbs of food for our local food pantries AND enough money to provide food packets for 10 displaced families to feed them for 5 months. Great job Parkway UCC! Let’s keep up the great work in the fight against hunger both here in our community and around the world.
