Walking to build a world where there is enough for all.

Walking to build a world where there is enough for all.

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

We are making an impact. Together. 1981-2016 and beyond!

Each participant in our 36th CROP Hunger Walk started out by taking a "first step". Together we continued our commitment to raise awareness and funds to help end hunger in the world and then we got to work.

We took action with each step along the way in preparation of stepping up to the start line on World food Day. We came from faith groups, schools, community groups, and neighborhoods. We planned. We set goals.We learned about world hunger issues. We visited our 15 local partners. We made posters. We designed tee shirts. We invited everyone we knew to join in the efforts. We rallied. We asked for food. We asked for donations on line,through email, snail mail, and in person. We even collected coins for CROP. 

The final results are in. We've continued a long tradition here in Monmouth County. We've raised over $100,000 each year of this 21st Century. Red Bank CROP Walk #36 raised $113,000 and brought in 13,000 lbs. of food for local pantries. Our commitment is solid. We live in gratitude for all we have and believe in sharing with those less fortunate. Our participants in Monmouth County communities will walk until there is enough for all. 

We invite you to take your first step for 2017. Mark your calendar! We walk on Sunday, October 15, 2017. (always the closest Sunday to World Food Day!)

We are even stronger together because we are part of a community of caring neighbors all over the United States. CROP Hunger Walks are the original charity walk in the US!

Each Donation is a Step Closer to Reaching 2016 Fundraising Goals

On behalf of the children, families and communities they serve, Church World Service Global and Red Bank CROP Walk thank you for your compassion and generosity. CROP Walkers in Monmouth County are just the best!

Today is #GIVINGTUESDAY We just checked and our online teams are only $165 shy of reaching a goal of $30,000. Can you help them get there? ww.crophungerwalk.org/redbanknj/
Online donations represent 25% of our overall total raised which is just about $110,000. 2016 is our 17th consecutive year raising over $100,000 to help support programs fighting poverty and hunger in our local communities and in communities around the globe.

Church World Service website - "CWS has worked for seven decades with one goal: building a world where there is enough for all. We affirm the power of individuals and communities to take ownership of their future. We meet them right where they are, helping them create solutions they can maintain – and build on. That means a refugee family who is able to start a new life. Or someone rebuilding after disaster finds safety with dignity."

Grateful for a Bounty of Participating Organizations in 2016

We offer thanks to close to 70 organizations that gathered on World Food Day to take steps to end hunger in our 36th CROP Walk. Our circle of caring has grown over the years to include faith groups, schools, community groups, sponsors and local partners.

Together we collected 13,000 lbs. of rice, beans, peanut butter, and soup which was distributed to two dozen pantries on the day of the walk.

The funds we raised help to support 15 local partners and global partners of Church World Service in ministry for 70 years!  

As of November 15th, we have reached $108,000 with donations open through December 31st. We are well on our way to reaching this year's goal. 

Preliminary reports have been sent out with results. If you have any questions or have not received a recruiter's report please contact us.
