The Santa Clarita Interfaith Council will be hosting its 19th Annual CROP Walk to raise funds and awareness regarding those still going hungry on Sunday, Oct. 19, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The 2.5-mile walk starts at Saint Stephens Episcopal Church, 24901 Orchard Village Rd, Newhall, CA 91355. Everyone is welcome. This year a portion of the funds raised will go to the Church of Hope Food Pantry in Canyon Country and to the SCV Domestic Violence Shelter. Some funds will be part of long-term international sustainability projects in Pakistan, Niger, and Bolivia.
The event is open to the public and is free. The Santa Clarita Interfaith Council has raised over $190,000 since the first CROP Walk held in 1995. Each year the Council selects local organizations to receive funds and support. The Church of Hope Food Pantry regularly provides over 4,000 boxes of food families to who are desperate for aid. The Santa Clarita Domestic Violence Shelter offers safe, temporary housing for women and children who seek help to transition out of abusive situations.
Donations for the hungry can be made on-line through Church World Service at cswgolbal.org.
