WALK TO END HUNGER: St. James Participates in Annual Fresno/Clovis Crop Walk
St. James had one of-if not the-largest of teams of CROP Walkers at last Sunday's Fresno/Clovis CROP Hunger Walk. Thirteen of us walked from the Big Red Church (First Congregational) to and through the Tower district, 2.8 miles: Megan Peck, Deacon Terrance Goodpasture, Denice Leslie, Carol Mohan, Kim Leslie, Susan McKeefrey, Deacon Nancy Key, Dean Ryan Newman, Alec Nelson, Katharine Nelson, Elena Nelson, Meta Schettler, and Richard Jennings.
Many thanks to these walkers, to those who planned to but were unable to walk, and the many others who collected and donated online and/or directly on recent Sunday mornings. St. James Episcopal Cathedral Team has collected $1352 so far, but It's still not too late to donate online at:
It will be some time before we know the total amount collected by all the walkers from the various churches. Last year's total was over $13,000. 25% of what is collected for the Fresno/Clovis CROP Hunger Walk stays in the community for the work of the Central Valley Food Bank. 75% supports the work of Church World Service in the U.S. and around the world, working with secular and faith-based global and local partner organizations to alleviate hunger, develop resources, and provide disaster relief.
