As we look forward to Spring, it’s time to begin putting together teams for the upcoming CROP Hunger Walks, sponsored by Church World Service. From the first walk in 1969 to more than 1,300 annual Walks currently, CROP Hunger Walks raise millions of dollars each year to help end hunger at home and around the world. Twenty percent of everything collected stays in the local community. Consider joining with your church family, neighbors, and friends at one of these upcoming Walks in your area:
- Chapel Hill/Carrboro Walk: Sunday, April 10, 2016
- Sandhills Walk (Southern PInes): Sunday, April 10, 2016
- Cumberland County Walk (Fayetteville): Saturday, April 16, 2016
