Fwd: CROP walk funds


I just received this thank you today  and wanted to share it with you all. I am sure the Food Bank has also received a check.


These grant checks are always sent in the summer time which is good timing since donations are usually down in the summer.

Children in Crisis - CWS Response

Children in Crisis - CWS Response

Unaccompanied children and families need immediate assistance. CWS is asking for an additional $200,000 to provide legal services, spiritual care and other support for vulnerable children. Read the full appeal here.

Legal Services for Unaccompanied Children

CWS will deploy Spanish-speaking legal staff and volunteers to the Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to interview children and their families and help them understand how to apply for protection. With additional support, CWS also hopes to provide pro-bono legal services throughout the U.S. where children and families are sent after initial screenings.

Spiritual Care for Unaccompanied Children and Families

CWS staff and volunteers current assist with religious services and provide support in a detention facility in Artesia, New Mexico. With additional resources, we will establish a similar presence in other detention centers, matching federally funded services with private contributions.

Showing Hospitality to Arriving Children and Families

CWS is receiving troubling reports that children and families are being dropped off after their initial screening in potentially vulnerable spaces, such as parking lots and bus stops. Funds are urgently required to meet immediate needs including food, water, clothing, diapers, medical care, housing and bus tickets for those being left without any support.

Here's how you can help:

Donate

Make a secure, online gift using the form on this page. Your generous help will support our response to the crisis with unaccompanied children and families.

Advocate

Call your Members of Congress and demand that they reject rollbacks to child protection law.
President Obama and some Members of Congress are proposing to weaken important legal protections for vulnerable children. This is wrong. We cannot allow thousands of children to be put at greater risk.

Get informed

The number of unaccompanied children fleeing violence in Central America and entering the United States has grown to more than 57,000 so far in fiscal year 2014. More than 300 are reported to be crossing into the U.S. daily. This crisis requires a robust humanitarian response.

CROP Hunger Walk Team meets new Regional Director for Church World Service

The Vanderburgh County CROP Hunger Walk Team met with the new Regional Director of Church World Service for Indiana and Kentucky.

The new Regional Director is John Dolon.

Over lunch we met for almost two hours discussing ideas for the forthcoming Hunger Walk on November 5, 2011. One of our purposes for the meeting was to discuss how to get more congregations and other groups to participate.

We will also be helping John to find contacts in other neighboring counties to begin walks in their own communities.

One big topic was learning and working to use the internet and on-line giving in productive ways.
