Your Steps Will Help End Hunger!
Put your heart and soles in motion to help stop hunger. The pledges you collect for the steps you take support long-term development programs in more than 80 countries, including the Kalamazoo area and the United States. Locally - organized CROP WALKS bring together people of all ages and faiths in a network of local and global caring.
CROP Walks are faith-based community fund-raising events sponsored by Church World Service, and international relief development and refugee resettlement agency. There are over 2000 CROP Walks in the US. Funds raised help local anti-poverty efforts as well as the work of Church World Service (Visit: www.cwsglobal.org).
