We're Ready to Step Out for CROP Walk #41

We're counting down to our 41st Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk at Red Bank Regional High School on Sunday Oct. 17th

Please gather together for your small group walks at one of our local parks or your even in neighborhood during these next two weeks. We hope to see you come to RBR with friends and family and remember to bring 4 foods that help End Hunger: Rice, Beans, Soup, and Peanut Butter!

Hours are 1:00-3:00 pm or as long as it takes for the boys from Christian Brothers Academy and staff to count, sort, and package our food donations.   

Reverend Janet Jones of AME Zion Church will send off the CROP Walkers on a Victory Lap around the school, and then we will continue our program by recognizing Long Timer Supporters in our CROP Family – so get out your date books and remember what decade you started to walk or ride in a wagon or stroller for CROP Walks. Be ready to “shout out” that decade and also sign our banner of four decades plus one.  

You can also check out our returning Art Contest which already has its first submissions from Oak Hill Academy.  

Some Protocols will keep us all well and safe as Covid is still with us: 

1) Please wear a mask 2) socially distance 3) register online as a walker or with a donation to a team so you are covered by CWS insurance - option is to sign in with name, address, email, and name of group you are walking with for any post walk contact tracing.   

We can gather safely in community if we think about our own health, and others around us.   

Thank you for caring for hungry neighbors right here at home and in places where natural and man-made disasters have occurred, as that is where you will find Church World Service. Our Walk is the community hunger appeal of CWS, in the top 3 walks in the nation, and we are starting our 5th decade of walking. High Five for five decades. 

Remember that our host school Red Bank Regional, welcomes all of us, but please leave your family dog at home.   It is a school policy – No Dogs on School Grounds, so thanks for respecting that.

Red Bank Regional Key Club and National Honor Society Teens will be working the Photo OP so gather your group (wherever two or three are gathered together) and get your keepsake photo, which will be up on our website gallery following the walk. There will be strolling photographers, so get ready to pose for candid cameras!   

CHECK IN begins at 1 pm.  Food Tent will be up and ready for those mountains of food.   Notes from about town: Temple Shalom-Aberdeen-as already completed its food drive; Trinity Hall starts today, according to Haley Nelson. 

Oak Hill Academy has its CROP Assemblies (two take place to space out students) this Thursday, and Rumson Country Day School is revved up and booking a truck for the huge haul – tight competition between RCDS and OHA from last year.   

Our Goal is $141,000 for forty one years, and 18,000 pounds of food. So see you soon, and together we can make this happen, and we will feel really good.
