The walk starts at First Congregational Church in Lockport, 2:00 PM.
The walk will be very similar to last year’s walk with a slight change to the route along the canal. Last year, the Lockport CROP Hunger Walk raised $5,758.04 last year with 110 participants. We raised more last year than the previous 2 years combined! Our goal for this year is $7,500. and 150 participants. That would be about $50.00 per walker. We hope to get more Lemont, Homer Glen and Lockport churches involved, too.
Christian World Services, CWS, is helping us organize the walk and will supply us with recruitment materials. We are looking for someone to attend the Recruiter Rally on August 18th, at the First Congregational church in Lockport.
Part of the amount we raise will be granted to the Lockport Fish Food Pantry and the Lemont Food Pantry. The rest goes to worldwide and national Christian World Services.
