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!

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.
