SIOUX CITY -- The 42nd annual CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Walk will begin at 1 p.m. Oct. 21 at Grace United Methodist Church, 1735 Morningside Ave., continue to the Community Action Agency of Siouxland, 2700 Leech Ave., before heading back to the church.

Walkers are also encouraged to bring a can of food to leave at the Community Action Agency during this fundraiser that raises awareness of the struggles family face when dealing with hunger and poverty on a daily basis.

Approximately 25 percent of the money raised during the CROP Walk will support the Community Action Agency of Siouxland’s Interfaith Resources and 75 percent will support Church World Services, a cooperative agency of 36 different denominations, formed after World War II to meet human needs.

No bikes or roller blades will be allowed during the CROP Walk but strollers and wagons for young children are welcomed in the approximately three mile walk.

For more information about walking and contributing the Sioux City CROP Walk, contact committee chairperson Rolene Beauvais at 712-202-2424.
