The annual Metrocrest CROP Hunger Walk is Saturday, September 17th. Walkers raise awareness of hunger in our community and around the world, and raise funds to fight hunger. The Walk starts at Mill Valley Fellowship, 13545 Webb Chapel Rd., Farmers Branch (check-in 8am) and consists of a 2-mile route along the Rawhide Creek Park.

You are invited to participate in the Walk itself, or make a donation to one of the walkers who will be seeking sponsors. Online donations may be made here CROP Donation

Please contact Rick Davis (972-814-5325) if you need more information. Register to walk and pick up a packet in the Education Building Sunday mornings.

The Mission Team invites you to take the SNAP Challenge with us. During the week of September 12 -18, you are challenged to spend $4 per person per day on food.
