CROP is a mission of the Church World Service.

The Church World Service is working with partners in the U.S. and around the world to build interfaith and intercultural coalitions to eradicate hunger and poverty and promote peace and justice.

Together, we’re  supporting sustainable grassroots development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance.

The Erie Community is proud to be involved in this critical mission that benefits both global and local charities.  Sponsor a walker or walk yourself!
