South DuPage CROP Hunger Walk Captains

This page describes the responsibilities of a CROP Hunger Walk team captain. First, a big thank you to all of you who have agreed to represent your church or organization in this way. Your work is vital to the success of the walk both in encouraging others to participate, providing them with information and advice, and ensuring that donations are collected efficiently.

What is your role?

Set up an online team

  • Visit the Online Donations Page.
  • Click on "Sign Up".
  • Register your own account if necessary.
  • Choose a name for your team and fill in the requested information. You have to fill in your own information as a walker before completing the team registration.
  • Tell your recruits to register online and explain how they can e-mail friends and relatives to ask for online donations..

Advertise CROP Hunger Walk

  • Recruit team members through announcements, bulletins, flyers, and/or emails.
  • Other resources can be downloaded from the CROP Hunger Walk web pages.

Distribute Donation Envelopes

  • If your team members want to collect donations as cash or checks, request donation envelopes from the walk coordinator, Kristin Schultz.
  • Tell your members that they should collect the money, record the cash and check amounts on the donation envelope, seal it, and bring it to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church between 3pm and 5pm, on Sunday October 18. There will be a drop-off box in the portico of the church's south entrance.

Coordinate Team Virtual Walks

  • Review the CWS web pages that provide suggestions on setting up virtual walks.
  • Ask your team members to choose a group of five or less to walk with and select their own route.
  • Request the names (or numbers if children are involved) of all the walkers in their groups and send the information to the treasurer.
  • Ask them to take pictures and upload them to the South DuPage CROP Hunger Walk Facebook page.
