Recruiters Make a Difference

We held our Recruiter Rally yesterday and it was well attended.  This was for our packet pick-up, the materials these recruiters will use in their churches and businesses to promote the walk in helping to End Hunger One Step At A Time.

These recruiters are an important part of the walk.  Without their help and dedication in getting people involved we would not be as successful has we have been.  Last year we raised $82,500.00 with approximately 400 participants.  One of the results was recognition nationally by CWS that our walk was #9 in the United State and #3 in online giving.

Impossible, we think not. One of our champions is Doug Wyman who not only is on our planning team but one of the recruiters at Ascension Church in Oak Park.  He has set a goal of $100,000.00 for our walk this year.  Listen to Doug talk about why he walks and goal setting.  This was recorded in 2014.


Ascension Church was #8 in the country in raising money and First United Church was #27 in the country.

All of this happens with recruiters informing and encouraging people to join the walk.

Some photos from the day.

Please join us Sunday, May 5, 2019 to make all of this possible to feed the hungry here and around the world.  Join us to reach our goal.
