Last year, the local CROP Hunger Walk raised nearly $33,000 with the help of 204 walkers, more than 30 volunteers, and the support of more than 60 local businesses and faith organizations. Of the funds raised, 25 percent are shared with local area charitable organizations that help to fight poverty and hunger, including the Baldwin Center, Farmington/Farmington Hills Neighborhood House, Farmington Hills Salvation Army, CARES of Farmington Hills Food Pantry, and Yad Ezra.
