Local residents took part in The CROP Walk on Sunday, October 16, covering a four-mile route around Community Park. Walkers included children, parents with strollers, individuals and families. People were encourage where the name, photo and information on a beneficiary from past CROP Walks and think of the fact that many might need to walk miles for food, water and other necessities for life.
Funds raised at the this year’s CROP Walk go to Church World Service and are used for recovery efforts from Hurricane Matthew, including areas such as Haiti, Cuba and parts of the southeastern United States that were recently devastated by the tropical storm and flooding.
In addition, $25 of each $100 raised locally will be divided between food centers and pantries in the area. Anyone wishing to make a donation can visit crophungerwalk.org.
