2020 Annandale CROP Hunger Walk

The 2020 Annandale CROP Hunger Walk will be a VIRTUAL CROP Hunger Walk because of the need for social distancing to prevent spread of disease. The Annandale CROP Hunger Walk raises funds for Church World Service (CWS). Walkers collect donations to CWS from sponsors either online or by check. CWS will share part of the funds raised with ACCA. Walkers may walk at a time in October of their choosing and can choose their own routes to walk safely. A send-off for walkers will be held October 17 at 9 a.m. by Zoom call. Youth through grade 12 are invited to make posters about the CROP Hunger Walk and fighting hunger. Please submit a photo image of each poster to accacrop@gmail.com by October 15. Please include the artist’s first and last name, age and church in the email. Posters will be displayed on our Annandale walk Facebook page.
While the walk will be virtual, the needs are very real. CWS works with Christian organizations around the world to sponsor programs for hunger, disaster and refugee relief, and sustainable development programs to help improve peoples’ lives. In the U.S., CWS responds to natural disasters, supports refugee resettlement and works with local poverty organizations. For information on the Annandale Walk or to donate, click here or email Camille Mittelholtz.
