  • For walkers who choose to write a check, please make all checks payable to CWS/CROP.

    You may bring checks to the walk or mail checks to:
    Janet Chisom, CROP Walk Treasurer,
    Salem Presbyterian Church,
    P. O. Box 536, Salem, VA 24153.

The Roanoke Valley CROP Hunger Walk has named Feeding Southwest Virginia as its 2022 local partner agency. Twenty-five percent of CROP Walk funds will benefit Feeding Southwest Virginia, specifically, their Community Support Center (CSC) located at 2328 Melrose Ave NW Roanoke, VA. Opening in 2018, the CSC site has served as both a Meal Production Training Program and a distribution point for meals to children (Children's Feeding Program) and senior citizens (Senior Food Box Program).

Seventy-five percent of donations will be used by Church World Service to support its global hunger, humanitarian aid, and disaster response programs in 30+ countries.

Feeding Southwest Virginia and CWS need our support even more today. Together we can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors locally and globally.
