Pasadena area Crop Walk

37th Annual Pasadena Area Crop Walk is slated to take place Sunday, October 28th, 2012.

CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local volunteers to raise funds to end hunger.

Each year, First UMC Pasadena has participated in the Pasadena/Altadena Crop Walk. Join our youth and families and walk together to bring awareness about hunger in our world community.  The Walk is a 5K loop.

This years event will take place in Altadena at
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church
1014 E. Altadena Dr,
Altadena CA 91101. 

Registration begins at 1:00 pm, with the walk to follow at 1:30 to 3:00 pm.

25% of the funds raised are shared with the following local hunger-fighting agencies including:
•    ACTS Food Pantry
•    Bad Weather Shelter (ECPAC)
•    Holy Family Giving Bank
•    St Vincent de Paul at St. Elizabeth
•    Friends In Deed
•    Foothill Unity Center

CROP Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide - and right here in the U.S. - to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow.  Our local efforts are making a huge difference... and you are part of it!
