at Burgess Park along Burgess Drive, Menlo Park
We will again have education, music, and food to help nourish our bodies and minds at the event.
Thanks to all who came and those who supported them, we raised over $22,000 last year, up from $13,000 in 2014. Seventy-five percent of the money went to Church World Service or to relief agencies of your choice, and 25 % went to two local hunger fighting agencies. CWS accomplishes a lot with this money. For example, women in Kenya learn how to build their own sand dam so they don’t have to go so far to get water, disadvantaged minorities in Paraguay and Bolivia learn to grow kitchen gardens as small businesses, and gypsy children in Serbia finally get access to schooling.
To catch a glimpse of the impact you are making, check out CWS’s key projects in 2015-2016 on the NGO Aid Map:
I hope more of us from FBC can join in this walk. It is a fun way to make an impact on fighting hunger, both locally and abroad.
