TUCSON CROP HUNGER WALK

​The CPH CROP Hunger Walk team if off to a great start.  

We've raised over $1184.40 and we now have 12 team members!

(our team goal is $1500)

Here's what can be done with the money we've raised so far:

Families in West Timor, Indonesia struggle during the dry seasons to find clean water...which means they're often forced to use dirty water. The impact this "last resort" has on children is extreme: they suffer from diarrhea, malnutrition and disease.

 

But with $500 we're able to protect water supplies from contamination so that 20 families have year-round access to fresh, clean water...even during the dry season. Happy children, healthier communities. That’s one of the tremendous changes WE make possible!

 

Our participation in the CROP Walk impacts individuals and families in more than 30 countries as well as here in our own community.  With 25% of the money raised staying here in Tucson, here's how we're helping our neighbors:

  • The Community Food Bank distributed over 277,000 food boxes in five Arizona counties
  • Casa Maria Soup Kitchen has free breakfast for all who line up 7 days a week, plus a bag lunch to go
  • Interfaith Community Services helps people in need achieve stable, healthy, independent lives, and 1/3 of the people are families with children

Sunday, October 21, our youth will be cleaning windshields for donations to the CROP Hunger Walk. Help our youth support the CPH CROP Hunger Walk team.  For your donation to the Walk, they will clean your windshield during church services.  Every dollar helps.

 

Sunday, October 28th, join the fun and purchase a $5.00 whipped cream pie to toss at our Pastor after service.  All money will go to the CROP Hunger Walk.  

 

There's still time to: join the team, raise some funds, and/or donate to the team!  Click the link SUPPORT the CPH Tucson CROP Hunger Walk team!

CPH SPEEDWAY CLEAN TEAM

Saturday morning was too cool and rainy for the team to get wet,

So we postponed the cleanup and another date was set.

We gathered together early Monday no less,

Reached for our grabbers and donned our bright vests.

The trash on the roadway was a big soggy mess,

Wet food wrappers, pizza boxes, cups, and bottles put us to the test.

The trash dripped from our grabbers as we tried throwing it away,

It stuck to our grabbers where it wanted to stay.

But Dan, Carol, Paula, Sally, and Lynn,

Were up to the task and we didn't give in.

We cleaned up that trash all along Speedway,

Disposed of the trash in the right way.

Now the road is all clean at least for a short while,

Next month we'll be cleaning up that very same mile.

So join us on Saturday, November the 10,

We'll meet in the lower lot at 7 a.m.
