CROP Hunger Walk rallies scheduled
From press release
People are invited to pick up materials for the Rockford CROP Hunger Walk at one of the 2010 Rockford CROP Hunger Walk rallies.
The dates of the rallies are: Tuesday, July 27, 7 to 8 p.m. and/or Thursday, Aug. 12, 6 to 7 p.m. Both rallies are hosted at the Riverfront Museum Park, 711 N. Main St., Rockford.
This is your opportunity to learn all about this year’s Rockford Area CROP Hunger Walk, which is Sunday, Oct. 17. Participants will learn of hunger needs in Rockford and the world, as well as receive materials to recruit walkers and solicit sponsors.
This year’s Hunger Walk is dedicated to Edie Applegate, well-known nutritionist and long-time member of the CROP Hunger Walk Committee. She set up and managed the last four CROP Walks. She died this last spring.
Phone or e-mail David Jones, chairman, to indicate which date you plan to attend: (815) 540-3703 or e-mail email@example.com.
The CROP Hunger Walk raises money for local food pantries and worldwide hunger relief through Church World Service. People are welcome to designate other overseas relief organizations as well.
Last year, the CROP Hunger Walk raised more than $33,000. This will be the 24th CROP Hunger Walk, and yes, next year we will really celebrate.
