Walpole Community CROP Hunger Walk – 10/8/16

Walpole Community CROP Hunger Walk to be held on Saturday, October 8, 2016. Registration starts at 9:00 am and walk begins at 9:30 am.

With the aim of “Ending hunger one step at a time,” the Walpole Community CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of 50 Walkers and hopes to raise $5,000 to help stop hunger and poverty here in our community and around the world, through self-help initiatives.  A portion of the funds raised here in Walpole will go to the Fall Mountain Food Shelf.

2015-crop-walk-group-shotLast year, 26 Walkers raised more than $3,500 in their locally organized CROP Hunger Walk.

The goals of the interfaith CROP Hunger Walk are many: To raise funds to help hungry people; to raise awareness of hunger as an issue; to engage and train volunteers for community service; and to engage a broad cross-section of the community—persons of many ages and backgrounds—in service to the neediest of the world.

Donations to the Walpole CROP Hunger Walk are tax-deductible and can be made online. Please consider joining one of the existing Walpole CROP Hunger Walk teams, or create your own—if you can’t walk, you can still register as a team member and help us fundraise! Registration and donation information is available at http://www.crophungerwalk.org/walpolenh or by contacting Ellie Shaw at 756-4866.
