Every day, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes – one child every 5 seconds. About 1/6 of the world’s population do not have access to safe water. 2 million children die each year from infections spread by dirty water and lack of access to decent sanitation.
Do statistics like these inspire you to do something for the children of the world? Then join the 36th Phoenixville CROP Hunger Walk! The 2013 Walk is Sunday, October 20th. Registration, Pizza and Refreshments begin at 12:00 p.m., Opening Ceremonies and Raffle Drawings 12:30 p.m., Walk 1:00 p.m. 25% of the funds raised go to St. Mary’s Franciscan Shelter and Phoenixville Area Community Services. Church World Service uses the rest of the funds around the world.
Please walk and/or sponsor walkers. Everyone is needed to help end hunger one step at a time.
