To the people of Los Alamos and White Rock,
Los Alamos’ CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot 2021, held on November 21st, raised well over $11,000 to end hunger. Despite the ongoing pandemic, the need for COVID-safe practices and half the normal number of participants choosing to stay home, the funds raised through the event, happily, came to three-quarters the usual amount.
The CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot planning committee expresses its gratitude to Los Alamos County residents for their continued participation, enthusiasm and monetary support.
At least 25 % of the total raised by the hunger walk each year goes to L.A. Cares, the local food bank in town. The balance of the funds is sent through Church World Service to fight hunger around the world, and to provide relief here and abroad to survivors of natural disasters.
Thanks again for this strong community effort. The committee encourages readers of this article to mark their calendars for the next Los Alamos CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot on November 20, 2022, the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
