Harvesting for Hunger

True to Northwest style, hundreds of people came out even with the threat of rain, to participate in the 36th annual Pierce County Hunger Walk!

Raising thousands of dollars to help fight against hunger in our community, people from throughout the community came together as one, to show they care.  And they are still receiving donations for their part in the walk!

Perhaps you are now thinking, “darn, I wish I could’ve participated”; there is still time to help. For the month of October, we are continuing to raise funds through “Harvesting for Hunger”.  So whether you had to miss the walk this year, or were able to participate but feel lead to do more, you have the opportunity.

Our “Harvesting for Hunger” is a fun way for folks to donate through an interactive poster.  Kids can color the pieces of fruit and vegetables, adults write the amount they will be donating, and then post it on either the tree or basket.

Everybody can participate!  It is a fun way faith communities (especially youth groups), school or civic groups or businesses can show their support in the fight to combat hunger in Pierce County.  All funds raised will go to Emergency Food Network who can take $1 and turn it into $12 worth of food.

The steps to “Harvesting for Hunger” are simple:

  1. a person is selected as the point of contact
  2. posts the poster of their choice (or both if they want!)
  3. advertises the opportunity to either “fill the basket” or “harvest the tree”
  4. collects the money
  5. contacts Michele Cotton at michelec@associatedministries.org to arrange delivery of monetary donations
  6. more people in our community will receive necessary food for themselves and their families!

Downloads of posters and images you can use are available online under the Hunger Walk Resource Tab.  Uniting together to help the most vulnerable in our community is a mission we can all agree on!
