Freedman Cares – Oak Park Hunger Walk

Freedman Cares about local initiatives. That’s why our team is helping to end hunger one step at a time by participating in this year’s CROP Hunger Walk.

This is your chance to fight hunger. To show the world you care.

CROP Hunger Walks help children and families worldwide – including here in the U.S. – to have food for today, while building for a better tomorrow.  Last year more than 116,000 CROP Walkers, volunteers and sponsors put their caring into action, raising funds to help end hunger and poverty at home and around the world.

This year, we are walking in the West Chicago (Oak Park) CROP Hunger Walk and I’d like to invite you to join FreedmanCares as a Walker or Supporter.

Go to our team page using the link below, then click the “Join Team” or “Donate Now” to show your support.

The event will take place on Sunday, May 3rd in Oak Park.
