Invites Participation In CROP Hunger Walk

To The Editor,

On Sunday, October 6, the 29th annual Fulton County CROP Hunger Walk will be held at Cowans Gap State Park. 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 more than 65 years.

We live in a world where there is enough for all, yet hunger persists. Our CROP Walk will assist refugees from Syria as they struggle to survive in camps in neighboring Jordan, enable families in Haiti to grow more and better food, and assist communities working to recover from storms in parts of the United States. Twenty five percent of what we raise by walking will go to the Fulton County Food Basket to help our neighbors right here in the county.

Please, come join our CROP Hunger Walk. 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.
