We need your help as time is running short.

37th ANNUAL CROP WALK is set for Sunday, October 28, 2012, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Please join us to help end hunger "one step at a time"!
The five mile walk will start and end at:
St. Mark's Episcopal Church
1014 East Altadena Drive, Altadena
Last year we raised $42,000, 25% of which went to local hunger-fighting programs, such as the ACTS Food Pantry, Ecumenical Council of Pasadena Area Churches (ECPAC) and the Bad Weather Shelter, and the rest was sent to combat famine abroad. Remember, a very high percentage of people around the world suffering from hunger and malnutrition are people of color. This disparity in the availability of basic necessities to sustain life is a glaring example of the devastating effects of pernicious poverty and racism.
We need your help to field another strong team of walkers representing All Saints and raise as much money as possible for this year's CROP Walk.
If you are not a walker, you can still participate by backing a runner with a generous donation. You can make your pledge at the CROP Walk table on the lawn on October 14 and 28 where you can also donate canned goods.
Additionally volunteers are needed to help with registration and counting money during the walk on Oct 28. Registration volunteers need to come to St Marks by 12:00pm and money counters by 12:45pm.
To volunteer for the day of the walk, or for more information, contact:
