2022 Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk Sponsor Information
We are asking local businesses and organizations to consider sponsoring the 42nd Annual Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk. Consider donating to this worthwhile cause while gaining prominent recognition for your business or organization. You can have your company name and/or logo proudly displayed on the event t-shirts, brochures, website, and signage.
Hunger and poverty prevail in our world, and continue to escalate in the current economic conditions. Currently, one in seven people are food insecure, with half being children. With your help, hunger can be eradicated. Locally, the Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk has been supporting our community for 41 years, providing funds to help those in need. The funds raised locally benefit the Potter’s House Community Kitchen, where 300+ meals are served daily, and support the world-wide efforts of Church World Services, an international organization that works to end hunger and poverty around the world.
CWS’s efforts have provided assistance and training for people like Maria William, enabling them to better provide for their families in Kenya. Maria is a mother of five and received help from CWS for a clean water source. She and her children would have to walk long distances to have clean water. With a clean water source close by, her family will no longer suffer from water-related diseases. Maria now has time to sell vegetables in the market and provide a small income for her family, and her children can focus on their studies.
“We are happy because our lives will be prolonged and remain strong and healthy to take care of our families. I’m sincerely grateful for this project,” remarks a happy Maria who is now assured of feeding her family and having clean water.
Maria is one of many success stories that we can share from the fundraising efforts of the CROP Hunger Walk. In addition to the international work the CROP Hunger Walks make possible, 25% of the funds raised are utilized here in our own community. Thanks to the generosity of the Greensboro community, more than $26,000 of the total funds raised through the 2021 event will be used locally in the Greensboro area to help ensure that no one in our community goes hungry.
It is our hope that you will join us in the fight against hunger by becoming a sponsor of the 2022 Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk on October 2nd. For as little as $300, your company can become a Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk sponsor. You will be making a difference in the community while receiving valuable advertising. For more information on sponsorship levels and the benefits of being a sponsor, please see the enclosed sponsorship brochure.
I hope that you will join us in our on-going efforts to end hunger, food insecurity and poverty.
