CROP walk helps thousands

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

In this year of rising gas and food prices, as well as divisive national political campaigns, one thing cuts across the board. People in our country and around the world are going hungry every day and don’t have clean water or a roof over their heads. In spite of the financial crisis in our country, most of us are pretty well off by comparison to others around the world. The CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk is an avenue to address these concerns from a grass-roots level. This organization has provided support for victims of hurricanes and fires in California, among other valuable efforts.

The following organizations in Los Alamos are taking part in our fundraising efforts: Bethlehem Lutheran Church, First United Methodist Church, Los Alamos Jewish Center, Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, Unitarian Church, and United Church. Given there are approximately 30 churches in Los Alamos, we’d sure like to see more church involvement. We also encourage individuals to join us! Please contact Aaron Goldman at 662-5959 or apgoldman@swcp.com or Lynn Wysocki-Smith at tewapack@rt66.com.

When all the money is collected a check is sent to Church World Service (CWS), the overarching organization coordinating CROP.
