    Name: Open Door Ministries 33rd Annual CROP Hunger Walk
    Date: September 25, 2016
    Time: 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    This is a very important walk for our community, because it is a walk for people who are living in desperate situations and extreme poverty. This year, the CROP Hunger Walk 2016 will be in Downtown High Point, beginning and ending at First Baptist Church on Main Street. We are also adding several prayer stops along the walk, where our walkers will offer prayers for issues important to our community. These issues will include the sick, the mentally ill, those in prison, the homeless and hungry, the furniture market and local businesses, High Point’s universities, colleges and government, and the Churches, Synagogues and Houses of Worship in our community. The funds that we raise will send food and supplies directly to third world countries, where the need is critical. Historically, Church World Service (CWS), an international relief, development, and refugee resettlement agency, was purposed to gather wheat and other crops from U.S. farms for shipment to Europe. Today, locally-organized CWS sponsored CROP Hunger Walks are an important part of community life, bringing together people of different faiths, diverse cultures, and all age groups, to walk to raise monies and to bring help and hope to people in need around the world, in the U.S. and here in High Point! In as much as High Point and Greensboro have been listed as the # 1 community in the nation for food hardship and food insecurity, a portion of the funds raised (25%) will also be used to meet local hunger needs through Open Door Ministries. It is difficult for us to imagine what hunger is like, but the need is great and it seems to be growing. Your involvement and support is needed now more than ever.
