It's CROP Walk Season in New Mexico

(Photo Church World Service)
Church World Service is sponsoring nine CROP Walks in New Mexico in the fall of 2013 and another one in the spring of 2014. People of faith in each of these 10 communities are walking a few miles not only to raise funds for hunger and disaster relief but also to raise raise awareness about the issue. Last year, 160,000 walkers of all ages around the country participated in a CROP Walk. Keep in mind that a CROP Walk is not only for walkers but also for those who support them with a monetary donation.  Read about previous walks in Albuquerque in 2009, 2011 and 2012 and  Las Cruces in 2010.

Click on the highlighted name of the city to learn more about each walk, including the contact information for the organizers, how to donate to participants in that particular walk and other details. In most cases, there is a link to the church or college where the walk begins. Some details are yet to be completed, particularly for the later walks, so please keep checking for updates.
