Hunger is an issue that is very important to us. Once again we are participating as part of the planning team for the Hunger Walkathon West (Oak Park Area) CROP Walk. We would like your support.

CROP Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide — including here in the U.S. — to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow. Our donations will provide assistance for hungry people in our community and around the world by supporting Church World Service’s life-saving programs. 

This year Hunger Walkathon West will be contributing 25% of the amount raised to 10 local organizations: Pine Avenue Food Pantry and St. Martin de Porres Food Pantry in Austin; Proviso Food Pantry, Vision of Restoration Food Pantry and Quinn Center of St. Eulalia Hunger Ministries in Maywood; OP-RF Food Pantry in Oak Park; First Baptist of Melrose Park Food Pantry; Forest Park Food Pantry; Housing Forward, serving the near west suburbs; and Cluster Tutoring serving Austin. Join with us as we work together to solve this global challenge.

You can make a big difference. Visit our personal page where you can make a secure online donation. If you prefer, you may mail us a check made out to CWS/CROP to:
