Since 2003, Yad Ezra, along with Baldwin Center, St. Alexander’s Food Cupboard and the Salvation Army, have joined forces to educate the greater community about global hunger with a Crop Walk scheduled every May in downtown Farmington. Church World Service (an ecumenical organization dedicated to raising funds for hunger relief) has held the Walk in Farmington for the past 27 years.
The walk begins at the First United Methodist Church (33112 Grand River, in downtown Farmington), with registration at 1:00pm. Two routes are available: a 10 km (6.2 miles) walk or a 3 km (2 mile) walk. Walkers are asked to get sponsorships for their efforts. Proceeds will benefit local agencies including: Neighborhood House (an agency that connects economically disadvantaged with social agencies for assistance); The Salvation Army (provides food assistance, payment of shut-off utilities, after school programs); Baldwin Center (provides meals, counseling, shelter, day care and programs for residents of Pontiac); St. Alexander’s Food Cupboard (provides food for needy families in Oakland County); and Yad Ezra.
Join us Sunday May 1st in downtown Farmington and walk with fellow Yad Ezra supporters. Can’t make it? Consider donating to the Crop Walk here: https://www.crophungerwalk.org/farmingtonmi/YadEzraDet
