Use QR CODE to Help Spread the Word about Walk #39

A new step in fundraising for walk #39 is an expanded use of our QR Code. We've added it to a 4x6 glossy photos. 

We're asking our area recruiters to use them when they're talking about our CROP Hunger Walk. We also plan to share them at lots of locations in the communities that participate in our walk. We hope they'll encourage people to take a photo of the image. Faith groups, schools, community groups, and local businesses can display them on community bulletin boards. 
  • Step 1  TALK CROP Walks support local and global programs working to end hunger.
  • Step 2  SCAN THE QR CODE  for yourself.
  • Step 3  Give the photo to a friend or family member.
  • Step 4  ASK them to scan it and snap a photo to save on their smart phone.
  • Step 5  PASS IT ON! Ask them to give it to another friend or family member, or post it at school, church, or on a community bulletin board.
Scanning the QR Code takes people to the home page on our website where they can find all the information they need to participate in this year's walk on Sunday Oct.20th. We're stepping up to end hunger through our local and global partners!

You can also REGISTER and DONATE ONLINE through the donate button. We've already got nine online teams set up and it looks like the teen leaders from area high schools are leading the way!

2018 Another Successful CROP Hunger Walk

Our area CROP Walkers have created a strong "Circle of Caring" in Monmouth County. We raised over $100,000 again in 2018, making that 19 years in a row!

We're hoping you'll continue to support our CROP Hunger Walk and help us to grow so our support can do even more to help those in need. You can visit the Church World Service website to see what kinds of things the funds we raise can provide.

2nd Successful Year of Pennies for CROP

Students at Red Bank Primary School under the guidance of teacher aide Chelsea Foster collected coins during the month of October. This was the second year the school participated in this fundraising project for our Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk. Thirteen classrooms used orange juice jars to collect their coins and later poured them all into a large painted globe (thank you Chelsea!) The globe was used to explain to the children how loose change can add up and help fight hunger locally and around the world. 

Principal Laugelli and the classroom teachers have been very supportive of this project. The children were delighted with the results. Their second year was just as successful as their first and they collected $265.65. Janie Schildge, walk coordinator was joined by Monica Faett our art contest chair. They delivered the coins at the Two River Community Bank Branch on Shrewsbury Ave. Thank you to Donna Marra and staff for assisting in the use of the coin counter and depositing the money into the CROP account.

Total funds raised so far are nearing $100,000. Every penny counts. Fundraising is open through Dec. 31st.  https://www.crophungerwalk.org/redbanknj/

Shout Out to the People that Kept our CROP Walkers Safe

Hundreds of CROP Hunger Walkers braved the chilly autumn day to walk to end hunger. We thank the Garden State Amateur Radio Association. Under the leadership of Tom Cosgrove, the GSARA has been volunteering for several decades to keep our walkers safe. Tom coordinates with Fire Police, crossing guards and volunteer route monitors and the tired walker van provided by the Red Bank Senior Center. The crowd of walkers starts out at Red Bank Regional and fills the street along Cambridge, Harvard, and Harrison. As runners and walkers spread out they move onto the sidewalks where volunteers provide direction as walkers cross intersections throughout the five miles through Little Silver, Fair Haven, and Red Bank. 

If you missed the day because of the weather, please remember that donations remain open through December 31st.  
Donations may also be mailed to PO BOX 8022 Red Bank, NJ 07701

Celebrating CROP Walk #38

World Food Day and our 38th Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk, Oct. 21st, have come and gone.  We thank everyone for making it happen! We had dozens of volunteers that helped to organize and keep the day running smoothly and kept walkers safe along the five mile route. Our "CROP Walk Circle of Caring" included more than volunteers. It included walkers, runners, artists, musicians, photographers, sponsors, donors, moms, dads, grandparents, children, students, Short Stop the Clown, Cookie Monster, and even the family dog! They were all heroes of the day. A little wind didn't keep them from walking to end hunger in the world. Our food collection exceeded our 2018 goal and over 15,000 lbs of food was distributed to two dozen local pantries by the end of the day.

We are getting so many amazing photos to share. They say a picture is worth a 1000 words but we can't choose just one. So here a few from the amazing, high spirited day! More to follow! Please share your photos at redbankcropwalk@gmail.com

If you weren't able to join the crowd you can still contribute to our goals. Donations of any amount are appreciated and they add up.
