Last year, Hunger Walkathon West raised just under $73,000 of which 25 percent was distributed to 10 local agencies: Beyond Hunger in Oak Park, Forest Park Food Pantry, Pine Ave. and St. Martin de Porres food pantries in Chicago, Proviso and First Baptist Church pantries in Melrose Park, Vision of Restoration food pantry and Quinn Center of St. Eulalia hunger ministries in Maywood, Cluster Tutoring, and Housing Forward. All these agencies are feeling the pinch during the COVID-19 pandemic and need all of our support even more than before. The 75 percent that goes to CWS-Global will help our brothers and sisters in 55 countries around the world who are no less in need.

This year the walk will be virtual but the needs are actual.

Please help us to meet these needs by making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more as you are able.
