CROP Hunger Walk funds will benefit the overall work and ministry of Church World Service -- working around the world to help those in need help themselves through refugee assistance, self-help development programs, advocacy, and disaster relief. And, 25 percent of funds raised in Barrington stay in the area benefiting the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the FISH Food Pantry-Carpentersville, BACOA Meals With Wheels, Palatine Township Food Pantry, Wauconda-Island Lake Food Pantry, Project HOPE, the People in Need program of the Barrington Area Ministerial Association and Barrington Giving Day.

The Barrington CROP Hunger Walk is an ecumenical event and involves individuals from over a dozen churches, Barrington High School and the community. Over $1.3 million has been raised and over 12,000 walkers have participated in its 31-year history.

Mark your calendars and plan on joining as a walker or sponsor. Together -- with your family, group, or congregation -- we can change the world, one step at a time. To learn more, contact chairwoman Barbara Trumbull, barringtoncropwalk@yahoo.com, or (847) 487-2513.
