CROP Hunger Walk/Turkey Trot thank you
The 2012 Los Alamos CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot was a great success thanks to the many individuals, businesses, churches and organizations that contributed funds, time, and talents.
We had approximately 220 walkers/runners participating in the event and raised $13,055, an increase of more than $4,000 from 2011, and were yet again one of the top CROP Hunger Walk fundraisers in New Mexico (second to Albuquerque).
2012 was the first year we attempted a logo contest, with Sarah Worley being our young artist with a very creative design. Thanks to Sarah and the many other third through sixth graders who submitted wonderful logos, and to the many youth in town who participated in hunger banquets to raise awareness of national and global hunger issues.
The money raised is used at the grassroots level for worldwide relief efforts, with 25 percent of the funds locally disbursed to LA Cares and the remainder to Church World Service (CWS).
LA Cares provides services to those in Los Alamos County at risk of being homeless via monthly food distributions that support an increasing number of Los Alamos County residents.
