As this column is published, we are just about 20 days away from a terrific opportunity for you to help those suffering from hunger and poverty right here in Boulder County Colorado and around the world.
Plan on joining us now for the October 19th Boulder CROP Hunger Walk to be held 2pm at United Church of Christ in Longmont.
The plan is simple- you tell the story of how you would like to help folks who are hungry and plan to pariticipate in a 10K walk to raise awareness and funds for the hungry in Boulder County and around the world. Funds raised from this walk will benefit Community Food Share who can provide 3 meals for hungry folks for every $1 raised. Funds raised also benefit Church World Service who works on world wide hunger and malnutrition issues, disaster relief, children hunger and poverty, water issues and more.
Finally funds raised will help Bread for the World expand our collective voices as people of faith in urging our national leaders to pass legislation that helps alleviate hunger nationally and abroad.
If you care about the issues of hunger and poverty, the funds raised at this CROP walk is one of the wisest investments you can make. Each dollar that is invested will stretch to the the furthest to provide resources and hope to those suffering from hunger.
Even if you can not walk with us, consider supporting us by donating to the walk online. You can sponsor a walker, or simply donate to the walk.
With your help, we really believe we can reach our goal of $40,000 for 2014!
