CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) Walk :
We had 7 Hoppers who raised $185.72! Way to go Hoppers!
We had 26 walkers who have raised $3,014.15 so far. If you have not given in your sponsorship or would still like to donate, it is not too late! See Nora Parsons. Thanks to all the walkers and sponsors! 25% comes back to our community to help with hunger in Bennington.
What does CROP mean? CROP means folks of our Church family walking together Sunday October 14, starting at 1pm at 2CC … to take a stand against hunger in our world. It means that together we raise our awareness and that of our neighbors about the millions of people worldwide who live on the edge of subsistence, at the will of fragile economies.
CROP means folks of our church family who could walk outside to their cars, choose to walk 3.3 miles….SHOWING their solidarity with the many people who have to walk every day to get water, tend their fields and animals, to get to work or school, or to escape violence. CROP also means that those who sponsor our Crop walkers raise funds for international relief and development, to help people struggling to escape the crushing grip of poverty and powerlessness. Here in Bennington it means that we raise much-needed money for the Bennington Free Clinic and the Kitchen Cupboard (25% of what we raise is used right here in Bennington.
