Sedgwick County Park
1pm Registration, 2pm Walk Begins
West Heights is excited to participate in the national CROP Hunger Walk again this year! Last year, West Heights recorded the most donations of any Wichita organization. As a result, we were able to have the honor of holding and displaying the CROP quilt this year! With generous donations to this worthy cause, we hope to retain this honor for another year.
The CROP Hunger Walk is a fundraiser held in communities all over the United States to help reduce hunger locally (25% of funds raised stay local) and around the world through Church World Service. CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. The Wichita CROP Hunger Walk is over 30 years old and has raised over $398,000 for global efforts and $99,450 for the work of Wichita local agencies. 2016 local recipients were: City Life Church Neighborhood Fellowship, United Methodist Open Door, St. Paul’s Lutheran Community Breakfast and Inter-Faith Ministries Food Programs.
CROP works through congregations and community groups to gather teams of walkers. Walkers are invited to find people to sponsor them - walkers who raise $100 or more get a CROP Walk t-shirt on walk day. Walkers can register their teams and team members here so people can make secure on-line donations. Donations can be made to an individual West Heights walker or to the West Heights team. We encourage donors to use this online method of supporting our efforts to reduce paperwork and increase the security and accuracy of your donations.
