Thanks to so many of you, the First UU CROP Walk team—Rick Bromley, Mona McCormick, Nic Stoltzfus, Be Young, Louise Lorenz, and Jim Beidler—has nearly met its $4000 goal for the anti-hunger event (Note: as of this writing earlier in the week, we’re at $3745!).
It’s not too late to lend your support, either by signing up to walk or stopping by Beidler’s house (1423 Old Bernville Road, Leesport, PA 19533) on CROP Walk day (this Sunday, Oct 9) at 3 p.m. to celebrate with a cookout. Please email Jim at email@example.com or call/text to 717-507-7237 if you’re planning to come.
The annual Reading-Berks CROP Walk, sponsored by Church World Service, supports anti-hunger efforts around the world and in our area. A quarter of the funds raised stay local with the Berks Schuylkill Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank, which supplies the monthly food pantry sponsored by First UU.
