2017 Salem County CROP Hunger Walk
CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service (CWS) and organized by local volunteers to raise funds to end hunger. This year, The First Baptist Church of Pedricktown is hosting the 2017 Salem County CROP Hunger Walk on Saturday, April 30th. Union Presbyterian Church will be joining them and other Salem County churches and businesses for this worthwhile event.
CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. The Walk has raised more than $100,000 over the past five years in Salem County alone. Twenty-five percent of those funds were distributed to Salem County food pantries and soup kitchens.
This is your opportunity to support an interfaith, community-oriented event that (1) raises funds to help hungry people, (2) raises awareness of hunger as an issue, (3) engages and trains volunteers for community service, and (4) brings together persons of many ages and backgrounds in a common endeavor.
