September Mission Focus: 

Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk
The Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk is a community-wide event sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations and groups to raise funds to end hunger and poverty at home and around the world. The Walk helps to support grassroots development efforts around the world. Our CROP Hunger Walk returns 25% of the funds raised to support hunger-fighting programs through seven local hunger alleviating agencies. Funds raised through the Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs.  From seeds and tools to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths, and their needs.
 
The Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk is a virtual event this year

For forty-four years the Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk has raised funds to alleviate hunger and poverty in the Lansing area and around the world. Like so many events that involve a large gathering of people, the CROP Hunger Walk has had to make changes. Because the needs associated with food insecurity and poverty are on the increase due the novel corona virus, we will move forward to raise funds through a virtual event.
Seven local hunger agencies and many international and domestic programs funded by Church World Service depend on the success of the Greater Lansing CROP Hunger Walk. Okemos Community Church is in the top five organizations of the Lansing Walk, so your support as a walker, rocker, runner and donor is key to the event’s success. Please give to the CROP Hunger Walk through the September Mission Focus and sign up to participate as a virtual participant at 
www.crophungerwalk.org/lansingmi and invite family and friends to sponsor you. Participants are invited to walk, run, rock or participate in some other way between October 1 and October 11.
