With many donations from inside and outside the congregation, our four-person team for the Reading-Berks CROP Walk raised $3085 as part of the anti-hunger fund-raiser event that drew more than $25,000 in donations. A quarter of the funds raised stay local with the Berks Schuylkill Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank, which benefits the monthly food pantry sponsored by First UU. If you still want to make a donation, feel free—the CROP Walk website stays open here: https://events.crophungerwalk.org/2021/team/first-uu-berks-county
