Oxford’s Hunger HELP Walk

A life long resident and philanthropist of Oxford, John H. Ware IV supported and encouraged the community and its residents. He shared his intelligence, generosity and humor with everyone. His unique personality was one of a kind and is missed by many.  After his passing in 2015, the Crop Walk was re-named the Hunger HELP Walk. The cowboy hat logo was created to represent, honor and remember John and his devotion to our town.


The Hunger HELP Walk is sponsored by the Oxford Area Civic Association & the Oxford Ministerium.
