Annual CROP Walk to Stop Hunger is Sunday in Norman

The annual Cleveland County CROP Walk to Stop Hunger is set for Sunday in Norman.
From Staff Reports Published: October 6, 2012

The after-walk celebration will include a hot dog cookout provided by First American Bank and dance music by DJ Adrian Buendia and Nexus Productions of Norman. Rest stations along the route, staffed by local Girl Scouts, will offer water and restrooms, along with water and dog treats for furry walkers.

Other ways to help

Those who are unable to physically join in the walk but want to contribute and participate are invited to join the festivities.

Twenty-five percent of CROP Walk proceeds will be donated to Norman's Food & Shelter Inc., which provides emergency housing for homeless families and meals to the hungry. The remaining CROP Walk proceeds go to support hunger relief and development projects of the Church World Service across the United States and more than 80 countries.

In conjunction with the walk, participants are encouraged to bring peanut butter and/or tuna for a drive to benefit local food pantries across Cleveland County. Free T-shirts will be provided to walkers who raise or donate $100 or more. 2012 CROP Walk shirts will be for sale for $10 each.
