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.
