CROP HUNGER WALKS began in 1947 under the wing of Church World Services and for many years has raised funds to help provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs both locally and globally.  Our local Church Women United is sponsoring the Hastings CROP Hunger Walk event.  On October 9 at 2 pm gather at Hazelrigg Student Union (9th and Elm) at Hastings College for registration and inspiration.  This is also the donation collection point, and where we will then begin our walk around Heartwell Park before returning for refreshments.

First Presbyterian Church in Hastings has a team in this event.  Please join our team as you donate to this much-needed fundraiser.  A table is in the Memorial room each Sunday until October 9 for your donations and will provide information of the walk event.  You may also donate in the church office, at the event on the day of the walk.  To donate online go to, find the Hastings NE Walk, register & join a team, First Presbyterian Church, or start your own team, or just donate.  Follow the simple step-by-step instructions.

This year, 25% of our Hastings walk fundraiser will be used locally to benefit our new Hastings High Food Pantry.

Join in on the fun October 9.  Register before the walk, it starts at 2 pm.

Walk with us so our community will become aware of hunger locally and around the world.  Thank you.  For your questions or help call 402-469-2638.
