Businesses are an important part of the giving to the CROP Hunger Walk. In our area we have a large number of businesses who support our walk and contribute to it. Some contribute by offering a percentage of their sales that customers can designate to benefit our walk.
Such is the case of Ten Thousand Villages in Oak Park. This April 21, 2016, Ten Thousand Villages has a Shopping Day for our supporters, donors and volunteers. We receive 15% of the sales from customers who tell us they are shopping for our cause. Ten Thousand Villages states: “As a nonprofit organization ourselves, we understand the giving situation as well as how members value a fun, easy way to support your cause.”
All sales made that day will designate 15% to our walk. All a customer has to do is tell the clerk on check-out that they wish to designate their purchase toward the CROP Hunger Walk. It’s that simple and everyone benefits from their purchase.
Please support our local businesses and mention The CROP Hunger Walk when you visit them. Please let us know about your experience in supporting local business who support us.
