CROP Hunger Walk set for Saturday

On Saturday, April 24, at 9 a.m., walkers will leave from Chief Kamiakin Elementary School in Sunnyside as part of the annual CROP Walk to raise funds for people in need.

The Sunnyside Ministerial Association is sponsoring the annual CROP Hunger Walk.

Supporters of the CROP Hunger Walk say the effort reaches out to neighbors in need, both near and far, not with a handout, but a hand up.

Donations can be made by contacting Michael Hughes at 837-2734 or by coming to the CROP Walk, April 24, at 9 a.m., at Chief Kamiakin Elementary School.

Last year $1,321 was raised for the cause. One-fourth of the funds raised will remain in the local area to help out with the need here. The rest of the money will go to help those in hunger around the world.

An example of the CROP Walk's worldwide reach is that recently CROP Walk funds have helped in Haiti and Chile after earthquakes in those two countries.

Funds have also been used recently to help with flood recovery in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Rhode Island.
