CROP Walk Committee Volunteers Ready Materials for Park & Pick Up Rally

 Janie Schildge CROP Walk coordinator for over 35 years invited committee members to her home on Tuesday September 8th to assemble packets of materials for this year's 40th Anniversary Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk. Committee members organized sponsor envelopes, yard signs, CROP face masks, bandanas, neck gaters, posters, and educational materials. Work and fellowship made light of the work needed to be done before the Park & Pick Up Rally which was held at the First Baptist Church in Red Bank on Sept. 14th. 

Thank you to Dave Hermanson who created a poster to tape over our usual yard signs. There won't be a walk at Red Bank Regional High School this year. We'll all be walking in smaller, socially distanced groups and doing food collections to fill the shelves of Monmouth County food pantries. Most importantly, we'll be stepping up our efforts to raise funds online to meet this year's goals.

We always walk the third Sunday of October because it's the closest to World Food Day. We're hoping that our hundreds of walk participants will plan smaller walks during the week leading up to Sunday, Oct.18th. We encourage everyone to wear CROP tee shirts from previous walks, carry posters, bring your water, and do food collections for local pantries. Report to us what you're doing using the hashtag #redbankcropwalk2020


We already have sixty online teams and they've already raised over $20,000.
