Urges Participation In Annual CROP Walk

To The Editor,

On Sunday, October 7, we will be walking in the 29th annual Fulton County CROP Hunger Walk at Cowans Gap State Park. Now more than ever, we would like to invite friends and neighbors to join us for a walk that will be good for your heart – physically and spiritually.

The CROP Hunger Walk is a really great community event – an opportunity for everyone to show that they really care about fighting hunger and poverty, aiding refugees, and contributing to the vital self-help development programs for which Church World Service has been known for over 64 years. Church World Service is working around the world, but 25 percent of what we raise by walking will go to the Fulton County Food Basket to help our neighbors right here in the county.

Our afternoon of CROP Walking will help families in Kenya tap into new sources of clean water, assist refugees from Burma as they struggle to survive in camps along the Thai/Burma border, enable families in Guatemala to grow more and better food, and assist communities working to recover from storms in parts of the United States.

Please, come CROP Hunger Walk with us. Volunteer, sponsor a walker, or work those muscles with your own congregation or group. It really will make a world of difference. For more information, please contact Patty Hall at 814-599-7756 or visit www.cropwalk.org.
