Thank you, Grand Island!by jmaloni
Fri, Oct 1st 2010 01:00 pmAs the coordinator of this year's CROP Walk for hunger which was held this past Sunday, Sept. 26, I want to thank the members of the community who participated in one way or another in this walk. While the money is still being counted, it looks like the total raised will be very close to $4,300. The money is sent to Church World Service. Founded in 1946, CWS is a cooperative ministry of 36 Christian denominations and communions, and part of the ecumenical family of the National Council of Churches USA. One-quarter of the money raised will remain here on Grand Island, and will be divided equally between the food pantries of the Neighbors Foundation and Trinity United Methodist Church. The rest will go all over the world to provide wells, food, help with refugee resettlement, and countless other causes of poverty. Many thanks to Kaegebein School, which opened its doors to us as the gathering place.
If you'd like to participate next year, please give me a call (773-3550) or contact me by e-mail, [email protected].
I'm eatin' tonight. Billions will not. That's why I do the CROP Walk.
