CROP Walk

CROP Hunger Walk October 4

CROP WalkFrom Carolyn Shepard-

Do you enjoy walking? Come join me and walk for a purpose on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 1:00 p.m. We meet at Burgess Park in Menlo Park for a one-mile walk, three-mile walk, or a five-mile run through a nice residential district.

The purpose is to raise money to fight hunger. Three fourths of the money raised goes to Church World Service. The remaining fourth goes to two local organizations that work with needy people in our area, namely the Ecumenical Hunger Project and Call Primrose in Burlingame.

To find out more about CROP walks and Church World Service you can go to their web site, www.churchworldservice.org . Or find out more about the San Francisco Peninsula CROP Walk.

In addition to walking, there will be food, an auction, a couple of bands, and a chance to meet like-minded people. Faith groups from Los Altos to Burlingame will be participating.

Contact me if you are interested in joining our team and I will give you a donation form to start collecting donations. Or, you can e-mail me, J092048@aol.com if you want to participate.
