CROP WALK OCTOBER 9, 2016 at 3 pm in BAXTER
For over seventy years, the Church World Service (CWS) has organized an annual event know to us as the CROP Walk. This year Baxter’s community and all who want to join us, are invited to meet at Shady Park, north of the Baxter School, at 3 pm, on Sunday, October 9th. From there we will walk around Baxter, increasing awareness of the efforts of CROP. A three mile walk is planned, however people may walk a distance they are comfortable with. We will meet back at the park for refreshments following the walk.
Donations for CROP are encouraged as 25% of the funds will benefit the Baxter Food Pantry and 75% will go towards CROP. The CWS (Church World Service) with other interntaional partners will use the CROP funds to help feed hungry, assist with disasters, foster economic growth and promote peace and justice around the world.
Together, we make a larger impact on improving and tending to the needs in our world. Let’s get together and walk on Sunday, October 9th, to help Baxter and others in our world.
