Kick Off Rally Featured on WCROP TV Evening News

This past Monday evening we gathered for a rousing RALLY to kick off our 34th CROP Walk Season.  Student leaders from 17 area high schools took on the roles of anchors and field reporters for an evening news program skit. Students created posters, the logo and props as they told the story of how walking in a CROP Walk connects us with people in every corner in our country and around the world. In the words of our Church World Service Regional Director, Kae Kusterbeck, "WOW! The presentation by the teen group was exceptional. They told the story in their own words about how CROP Walks help. It was an inspiring evening." Reporters shared news from local and global locations about how funds raised through CROP Walks help Church World Service work with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and help refugees to find shelter in times of need. 

We are grateful for the efforts of our ecumenical coordinating committee which works throughout the year in this inter-faith community event funding 17 local partners.  Recruiters came to pick up sponsor envelopes and educational materials as well as  T-Shirts, caps and wristbands. All materials are available either through the Resource Materials Page of our website or by contacting Kim Smith our Materials Coordinator.

All ages attended the rally: Students from Oak Hill Academy, many local High Schools both private and public, and a student leader from Brookdale Community College, Representatives from Faith Groups, our Local Partners and Sponsors. 


Here's to seeing you on Sunday October 19th as we walk at Red Bank Regional HS to change the world and end hunger.
