PARK and PICK UP CROP RALLY - Sept. 14th 2020

Park and Pick Up a new way to RALLY for CROP!  Thanks to the First Baptist Church of Red Bank for offering their tent in the parking lot for our PARK AND PICK UP of Team Captain packets and a few other items, including updated yard signs, posters, car window stickers, and some really nice face coverings to promote our 40th Anniversary Walk! Thanks so much to the church pastors and staff for allowing us to be there for 3 hours while folks arrived, parked and walked the arrows distanced. It was wonderful to see folks we have missed at gatherings this year. About 40 participating groups picked up sponsor envelopes and other walk materials. 

If you weren't able to attend you can contact the CROP Walk coordinator, Janie Schildge or Sara Swijter, the treasurer.  redbankcropwalk@gmail.com

We need a lot of you to make this walk a success, and we can do it!  We've done it every year for 40 years. You can't stop CROP this year when it's needed more than ever. Get started today, as it is free and easy to register, start a team or donate to one of our 60 plus teams online.   Make your first donation and share your message with all you know.  


We won’t be gathering at the start line this year at Red Bank Regional High School but we can all get an early start on fundraising.  2020 is presenting some extra challenges but we will rise to the need. Teams are planning their own food drives, and will count and report what they bring in, so by Sunday, Oct. 18th we will hopefully have a community wide count of food collectiions (Hunger No More with Four)  Suggested pantries are on a list available online, along with our 15 partner program.  Just contact and find out needs, and deliver!


So start now. Walk a mile a day, or 4 miles a day, or set a goal as some have for bigger achievements and get your sponsors. Thank you all for participating and thanks to our marvelous team of volunteers, sign makers, social media gurus, organizers, sales team, photographers, and more.
