World hunger focus of Sunday walk

POLLY KENNEDY

Pastor Bonita Knox and about 80 community volunteers are converging Sunday to participate in the National Communities Responding to Overcoming Poverty Hunger Walk 2011.

Knox is enthusiastic about the cause.

“I am just hosting this year. It is a community effort,” she stressed. “This has been going on for about five years now, and it is not just our church, it is because of the efforts and organization of other churches and community members that we are able to do this.”

CROP hunger walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by religious groups, businesses, schools and others to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world.

“We walk because they walk,”
