Looking to make a difference in these trying times, the Owego CROP Hunger Walk has set a goal of 200 walkers and hopes to raise $10,000 to help stop hunger and poverty here in our community and around the world with the event planned locally for Oct. 5.
There will be a recruiter’s meeting on Thursday, Sept. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Union Church located at the corner of Temple Street and North Avenue in Owego.
Amy Bobbette, the regional CWS director, will be at this meeting to share how CROP Hunger Walk dollars work to end hunger. Individuals, families, and civic groups are encouraged to join them. Refreshments and beverages will be served. All the materials for the recruiters will be given out at this meeting.
This year Owego and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme, “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time.”
These local ministries share in the funds raised by our Tioga County CROP Hunger Walk: Tioga County Rural Ministry, Tioga County Open Door Mission, Lounsberry Food Pantry, Community Food Cupboard of Spencer, ACT – Allied Christians of Tioga (serving free weekly meals), and Catholic Charities/Tioga Outreach Food Pantry.
