A very big THANK YOU to all our adult and teen committee members that were able to attend our spring planning meeting for this year's CROP Hunger Walk. We were delighted to see so many loyal faces along with some new ones! The success of our hunger walk depends on the dedication and commitment of our volunteers.
Janie Schildge, our walk coordinator talked about the Church World Service response to our local disaster - Super Storm Sandy, six months ago. Recovery efforts and rebuilding are still in progress and the nearly $600,000 of the CWS appeal help. We usually talk about national and international relief efforts but this year we saw CWS come to regional area. The CEO of CWS, Rev. John McCullough visited Monmouth County in December.
