October Mission Update
The collection of new underwear for the Center for Family Services will continue through Sunday, October 7th. We are collecting new undergarments sizes newborn through adult for those in need in Camden. Thank you for supporting this important project!
The CROP Walk, “ending hunger one step at a time”, will be held on Sunday, October 21st at 1PM. This year we are meeting in Haddon Heights Park at the McLaughlin-Norcross Memorial Dell. The walk will take us from the Dell through the park, across Kings Highway and around Audubon Lake and back to the Dell. We ask that you bring a non-perishable food item for the pantry. Chili, stew, canned pastas, and other proteins are always welcome.
Here is some history of CROP from the Church World Service website (https://www.crophungerwalk.org/):
When CROP began in 1947 (under the wing of Church World Service, which was founded in 1946), CROP was an acronym for the Christian Rural Overseas Program. Its primary mission was to help Midwest farm families to share their grain with hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia.
On October 17, 1969, a thousand people in Bismarck, ND, walked in what may have been the start of the hunger walks related to CROP – and raised $25,000 to help stop hunger. As far as we know, York County, Penn., was the first walk officially called the CROP Walk for the Hungry – and that event has been continuous since 1970. Several other CROP Hunger Walks occurred soon thereafter, and before long there were hundreds of Walks each year in communities nationwide.
We appreciate any support that you can give to the mission projects and understand that you may not be able to support all of them but prayers for the people participating in and for those receiving the donations are always welcomed! Thank you!!
