This past Thursday, April 29th, nearly 40 teens and adults from different area churches, schools, business and community organizations gathered at the Red Bank United Methodist Church to begin planning for the 30th RED BANK CROP HUNGER WALK Sunday, October 17th, the day after World Food Day. We opened with a quiz about local food needs in Monmouth County, and after learning the facts, we realize how much our walk and our food drive is needed! Our challenge goal of $130,000 for our big anniversary walk will not be an easy task, but with the commitment and enthusiasm of our CROP volunteers we are sure to reach it! Kae Kusterbeck from the Church World Service/CROP regional office shared global needs as well as the recent flooding in central New Jersey, and extreme storms affecting much of the United States, where we reach out and help.
Teen Leaders on Tuesday, June 29th at 7 PM - RB United Methodist Church
Adult CROP meeting on Wednesday, July 28th at 7 PM - Tower Hill Presbyterian
Thanks so much for your presence, your ideas, and your enthusiasm.
Yes! We can do this!
