Thank you for joining us for the 36th Annual Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk!

 

A Message Of Thanks From Our Director:

On Sunday, October 19th over 3,200 individuals representing the diversity of Charlotte’s corporate, civic and faith community participated in the 36th Annual Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk.  Motivated by their desire to end hunger locally and abroad, these individuals and their respective congregations joined us for the 3.8 mile walk and committed to help us raised $360,000 to help those who are hungry and living in poverty.  While we are well on our way towards meeting this year’s goal, we invite you and your congregation to join our efforts and to help us finish strong!


Your participation is critical because it is not too late to be a blessing to the single father of three children who finds it difficult to put food on the table tonight because the rent for their apartment is due tomorrow.  It is not too late to be a blessing to the young girls in East Africa who will travel nearly four miles away from their village each day just to find clean water to drink and use to cook what little food is available to their family.  As we enter the season of giving thanks, make a commitment to help us finish strong! I ask that you and your organization consider supporting the 2014 Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk in three specific ways:


1) Ask the leadership of your organization to designate a day during the month of November as CROP Stand Against Hunger Day.  Then take up a special “Giving Thanks” collection on behalf of the Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk that will go towards our efforts to end hunger locally and abroad.  Encourage person to consider contributing at least $36 in honor of our 36th anniversary of fighting hunger in the Charlotte community.


2) Include a brief write-up about our organization and its mission in your bulletin, newsletter and website.  Include a link to our website (www.charlottecropwalk.org) or secure online giving portal (www.crophungerwalk.org/charlottenc) in your write-up and encourage members to make an online contribution to support this year’s walk efforts.  Remind individuals that their contribution can be doubled, if their employer has a Matching Gifts Program.


3) Identify and/or confirm the one to three members of your organization to serve as the Walk Recruiter(s) from your church for the 2015 Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk which will take place next October.  We will contact these individuals and include them in our recruiter training rallies and they will receive ongoing communication regarding participation in next year’s walk.

 

Thank you for your commitment of faithfulness, servant leadership and service to the Charlotte community.  Your support will make it possible for the Charlotte CROP Hunger Walk to empower the least these in our community and abroad to overcome the great obstacles of poverty and hunger.

 

Peace & Blessings,

Ericka Ellis-Stewart
