Family walk to increase awareness of hunger issues through our local communities. Asking churches, social organizations, and individuals to come out on May 18 (Sun.) opening walk ceremony at 1:30 pm. This is a family walk not a race. Participants do not need to walk a long distance but we do need increased participation from community. 50 people walked last year and $6,000 was raised to help stop hunger. 25% of the donations will go directly to local food pantries, meal services, etc. Anyone can particulate and there is no fee. Rev. Dr. William Cook is the coordinator of this year’s event, “It is my hope to have a higher level of community support than in prior years.” Many of the food assistance programs are seeing larger registration with our poor economy. CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty). Please contact Wendy Harris (609) 220-4624 or Linda Dippold (609) 526-2399 for more information.
