Erie County CROP Hunger Walk
Join First Covenant as we grab our sneakers for the Annual Erie County CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, September 15 at Presque Isle. The walk’s main purpose is to alleviate hunger locally and throughout the world as 842 million people still find themselves coping with daily hunger and malnutrition. Locally, 25% of donations are returned to Erie County to be distributed to agencies
that combat hunger. Globally, CROP/Hunger Walk donations enable Church World Services to continue to invest in the right nutrition for children so they can grow strong and healthy. Communities are also empowered with skills and tools they need to make lasting changes that will feed them forever. So why walk? In many developing nations, women walk an average of six miles each day to carry a five gallon jug of water on their heads that weighs 42 pounds. Their family needs this water for drinking, cooking bathing or watering the garden or livestock. We walk because they walk.
Please consider joining Team FPCC in the walk. This congregation has reached out in combating hunger through Sunday Suppers. Let’s continue to show our concern and support for the hungry by walking and supporting walkers in the CROP/Hunger Walk. If you can’t walk five and a half miles, a one mile walk is available. The walk is for everyone; young and old. If you cannot walk on September 15, you can walk at another time. Sign-up forms are available in the First Covenant Welcome Center. We have a lengthy history of being a leader in supporting the annual CROP/Hunger Walk. Please help us keep this tradition alive by generously sponsoring
those who walk. Donations can be made on Sundays at the welcome Center, during the week at the church office or online at https://www.crophungerwalk.org/eriepa
