You can make a difference in the lives of hungry people
by walking, getting sponsors, encouraging others to walk, and making a
financial gift yourself. We walk because people around the world must
walk to carry water and to feed their families.
30th annual CROP Walk in 2012, 653 people
raised a total of $74,061.51
from 22 churches and groups walking together to help the hungry people
in our community and throughout the world. 25% of those dollars stayed
in our own area to assist the work of
Loaves and Fishes
Food Pantry, which annually serves 1500 needy Naperville families; and
helps the Northern Illinois
Food Bank, distribute 100,000 pounds of rescued food to local food
pantries. The remaining 75% supports the word of
Church World Service and
other international relief agencies to provide food, disaster relief and
self-help development projects in the U.S. and around the world. You
can learn more about this work at
Church World Service
the money donated by walkers goes to local food distribution
organizations and to Church World Service to help hungry families. All
administrative and promotional costs of the Naperville Area CROP Walk
are provided by our sponsors.
