Taylor Community Events

CROP Walk Against Hunger
After 18 years of increasingly successful CROP Walks, the Dearborn/Dearborn Heights (DDH) CROP walk committee has raised a cumulative total of $ 456,000 (as of 1997) for hunger relief. The outstanding generosity of the DDH community has not only made it the seventh highest CROP fund raiser in the state, but has it ranked 32nd nationally. Money raised by the CROP Walk goes for local, national and international hunger relief. The funds are used to support several local food pantries and soup kitchens. Internationally, food, seeds and farm implements are provided as well as disaster relief. Our CROP Walk takes place in the Fall each year.
