Take part in CROP Hunger Walk

September 19, 2014
Estherville News

Now, more than ever, I would like to invite everyone in Emmet County to join us for a brisk walk that will be good for your heart, physically and spiritually. On Sunday, Sept. 28, we will be walking in the Estherville Area CROP Hunger Walk.

The CROP Hunger Walk is a great community event - an opportunity for everyone to show that they really care about fighting hunger and poverty, aiding refugees, and contributing to the vital self-help development programs for which Church World Service has been known for over 67 years. Church World Service is working around the world, but 25 percent of what we raise by walking will go to the Emmet County Food Bank, to help our neighbors right here in Emmet County.

Our afternoon of walking will help families in Kenya tap into new sources of clean water, assist refugees from Burma as they struggle to survive in camps along the Thai/Burma border, enable families in Guatemala to grow more and better food, and assist communities working to recover from storms in parts of the United States.

Please, come CROP Hunger Walk with us. Volunteer, sponsor a walker, or work those muscles with your own congregation or group. We will step off from the United Methodist Church at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28. You can also use the Web to be part of the CROP Hunger Walk; visit to find out more. It really will make a world of difference!

For more information, please contact any EAMA congregation, or visit
