CROP Hunger Walk scheduled in Sunnyside

Sunnyside's sixth annual CROP Hunger Walk is scheduled for Saturday, April 30, at 9 a.m.

The fundraising event will start at Chief Kamiakin Elementary School in Sunnyside.

CROP walks are the fund-raising program for Church World Service. They are a way for neighbors to walk together to take a stand against hunger in our world. Events like the one planned for Sunnyside include people of all different ages, faiths and backgrounds - together community members raise awareness and funds for international relief and development, as well as for local hunger-fighting programs.

Some 2,000 communities across the country hold CROP walks each year.

CROP Hunger Walks help fight hunger and poverty locally and globally, with 25 percent of what a CROP Hunger Walk raises assisting local food banks, pantries, community gardens and other hunger-fighting initiatives.

In the last 20 years, CROP Hunger Walks have raised more than $294 million to assist around the block and around the world those struggling to feed their families. Last year, the Sunnyside CROP Walk raised $1,694. Those interested in walking or in providing financial support for this year's event are encouraged to contact Rev. Katie Haney at (509) 837-4314.

The Sunnyside CROP Walk is sponsored by the churches of the Sunnyside Ministerial Association as part of its outreach in the local community and around the world.
