South DuPage CROP Hunger Walk Business Sponsorship

South DuPage CROP Hunger WalkersCall it hunger. Call it food insecurity. Whatever you call it, the time for action is now.

In our five DuPage communities, the idea of hunger impacting our neighbors seems impossible. But this world-wide problem actually starts right next door. Now you have the chance to make a lasting impact and change the face of hunger, be it a child down the street or people halfway around the globe.

This fall the 34th annual South DuPage CROP Hunger Walk will once again raise critical funds to combat hunger. Members of our five communities pledge to help raise awareness about hunger, collect donations, and then join a CROP Walk in Downers Grove on October 20. One fourth of the donations go to local organizations, including food pantries and 75% to the hunger-fighting work of Church World Service/CROP around the world.

Local businesses and organizations can assist us in making this year’s Walk our best ever. Your support for the 2019 CROP Hunger Walk will help alleviate hunger as our publicity proudly displays your business as a supporter and leader in our community.

You can choose from four different levels of sponsorship, each with a varying degree of recognition for your participation:

Up to $149 Proven Seeds Your business name on our CROP website, Program, and Social Media
$150-299 Great Grains Above plus your business name on Walk Route Map given to all walkers
$300-499 Amber Fields Above plus your business name on CROP Walk incentives earned by walkers who raise over $150
$500 or more Ample Harvest Above plus choice of your business logo or name in LARGE PRINT on the Walk Route Map, Walk website and CROP Walk incentives earned by walkers who raise over $150

Last year, our CROP Hunger Walk raised over $30,000, with more than $7,575 going to local hunger-relief agencies. You can see more details on our Results page

If your business donation is received by July 15, your response will be included in all our pre-Walk publicity as well as recognized on CROP Walk Day. We welcome you to join us as we show our solidarity against hunger, one step at a time.
