South of the River Crop Walk is Sunday, October 10

Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church will host the 9th annual South of the River CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 10! Registration starts at 1:30 p.m., and the Walk starts at 2:00 pm. CROP Hunger walks are locally organized events under the sponsorship of Church World Service to raise awareness about global and local hunger. Seventy-five percent of funds raised support CWS in their global and US based efforts for hunger relief, disaster assistance, and development. Twenty-five percent of the funds we raise will support Second Harvest Heartland, a food bank that supplies all of our local food shelves. We are doing good work and you can be a part of it! Here are the ways you can help:
Follow the link below to join the Spirit of Life team, or donate to the team.
Contact the church office at spirit@spiritoflifeav.org if you would like to volunteer to assist on Walk day; we are looking for 2 or 3 people to help with check-in and registration.
Bring non-perishable food items to the Walk, that will be delivered to the Rosemount Family Resource Center food shelf.
Order a home-made, frozen take-and-bake Swedish apple pie! Some of you have purchased these pies in the past and know how good they are! They are $10 each and can be pre-ordered, with or without nuts. Contact the church office to place your order; deadline Sept. 24.
If you prefer to donate to the team, or pay for your pie with a check, please make it out to Spirit of Life, with “CROP Walk” on the memo line.
