The annual CROP Hunger Walk in Sunnyside is scheduled for this Saturday, April 30, at 9 a.m., beginning at Chief Kamiakin Elementary School.
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.
Last year, the Sunnyside CROP Walk raised $1,694.
Those interested in walking or in providing financial support for this year's walk are encouraged to contact Katie Haney at 837-4314.
The funds raised by CROP Walks also provide disaster relief and refugee assistance in virtually every part of the globe, from tsunami-devastated Japan to tornado-stricken North Carolina.
In addition to disaster and hunger relief, CROP Walks provide funding for sustainable grassroots development in communities all over the globe.
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.
