We are committed to sharing grace in public through acts of justice and compassion.  On Sunday, October 1, at 1:00 p.m. we are gathering with other people of faith – and those who sense a commitment to caring – to raise funds and awareness of world hunger issues.  The 12th annual Pittsfield CROP Hunger Walk is a collaborative event with Church World Service.

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen. For nearly half a century, CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.

Stand with neighbors in your community who rely on food assistance programs. Partner with parents worldwide as they ensure a bright future for their children. Support those struggling in the face of grinding poverty and open up new doors of opportunity for them. Tens of thousands of CROP Hunger Walkers are committed to building a hunger-free world. Join the movement!

Each Saturday starting September 9th to September 30th we will gather at Berkshire Crossing or Park Square from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for our “Takin’ It to the Streets” bucket brigade (collecting donations).  See the website calendar for more information on the date and place for each bucket brigade collection. To volunteer contact John Levesque at 413-281-8187 or rames@albany.twcbc.com.
