What a wonderful day for the Boulder County CROP Hunger walk! We think we had over 200 folks participating in this year’s walk and are eagerly waiting for the results.
Some of you still have donations to submit and please feel free to do so. All donations can be sent to our treasurer Leslie Sutton.
Again- thank you all for walking with us and helping the Hunger in Boulder County and around the world!
Many of you know that a large portion of our funds raised go to Church World Service.
In the aftermath of WWII seven denominations partnered together as Jesus requested to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless.
Almost 70 years later Church World Service is still seeks to improve the lives of some of the most marginalized and vulnerable people in the world. Their major areas of work are with disaster relief and emergencies, global food relief, refugee and immigrant resettlement and lastly advocacy for those who are suffering from poverty and hunger.
For example Church World Service will work to help provide clean water. See for yourself in this video of the clean water project in Indonesia.
