Holy Infant Raises $850 for the Durham CROP Walk

15 parishioners, including members of the JYM middle school group, walked in the Durham CROP Hunger walk on Sunday, April 2.

The Holy Infant Durham CROP Hunger team joined a crowd of hundreds on the lawn of the Duke Chapel to walk up to 5 miles to raise money for the hunger in the community and around the world. The weather was ideal for the outdoor event, with blue skies and comfortable temperatures. 

The theme of this year’s Durham Crop Hunger Walk – Neighbors Feeding Neighbors – “showcases how we are collectively and compassionately working together to address a critical need in our community,”

Durham CROP Hunger Walk donations are used to support hunger alleviation programs. Money raised is split between two organizations. 75% goes to Church World Service and 25% stays in Durham County and is used by Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA) to help our neighbors in need.  In order to best serve the most vulnerable in our county, DCIA then allocates the 25% to twelve hunger fighting agencies in Durham, including agencies that Holy Infant works with directly like Urban Ministries of Durham, Families Moving Forward and Meals on Wheels.
