Crop Walk (moved to November 6)
The walk will take place November 6 @ 1pm due to the snow storm.
Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty
Some 2,000 communities in our country take part in a CROP walk every year. Together people with age, faith, and cultural differences walk to take a stand against hunger in the world.
Why do we walk? Because worldwide over 852 million people go to bed hungry every night. Because of poverty they walk to accomplish things we take for granted; for food, water, firewood, to escape violence, to seek shelter, to farm their fields, to find employment, to go to school. Hungry people in developing countries typically walk as much as six miles daily. We walk because they walk.
Donations can be made during coffee hour on the weeks leading up to the walk, and walkers can pick up their donation packets then. On the 30th, walkers will meet in Fellowship Hall to turn in their donation packets, and will leave from there at noon. The walk will end at the Wilson’s home on Old Salt Works Road where participants will be treated to a cook-out. Tired walkers will be picked up on route. Drivers will be available to take participants back to the church following the meal.
25% of the monies we raise will be sent to the Shoreline Soup Kitchen and 75% of our funds will be sent to Church World Service for world- wide hunger relief. Please help us again this year to have a successful CROP walk. When you walk in a CROP Hunger Walk, you walk with the world. Thank you.
