Organization - North Shore CROP Hunger Walk Basic Needs


Organization Details:

North Shore CROP Hunger Walk
Last updated on August 12, 2013

CROP Hunger Walks bring the whole community together in a common mission: helping hungry people at home and around the world. CROP Hunger Walks are fundraising events designed to raise awareness and funds for people here and abroad who lack access to food, clean water, and basic necessities. CROP Walks are community, interfaith, ecumenical, hunger-relief events.
The North Shore CROP Hunger Walk raises funds specifically for Soup at Six (at Hemenway United Methodist Church Evanston); InterFaith Action of Evanston's Hospitality Center for the Homeless; Second Baptist Church Tuesday Soup Kitchen; The ARK in Rogers Park; and A Just Harvest in Rogers Park. The remaining 75% of funds raised each year in the annual North Shore CROP Hunger Walk goes to support the work of the sponsoring organization, Church World Service.
Church World Service is an ecumenical ministry of 36 denominations and communions which - with international, national, and interfaith partner agencies - works to eradicate hunger and poverty, and to promote peace and justice, around the world.

Description:
"The North Shore CROP Hunger Walk" consists of a committee of planners, and liaisons from area congregations, houses of worship, schools, Scouts, neighborhoods and others, who recruit and encourage the participation of Walkers and donations from Walkers' Sponsors.
In 2013, some 33 local groups and more than 330 walkers and staff participated, raising more than $44,000. The planning committee also needs volunteers to help with plans for this year's walk on Sunday, October 20, 2013.

History:
The North Shore CROP Walk has been held annually for many years, early-on headquartered from Trinity Lutheran Church, Evanston. The present committee has coordinated the Walks since 1996, under the direction of Nadine Doughty, of St. Augustine's Episcopal Church, Wilmette. Currently, Second Baptist Church of Evanston is the base congregation.
