WAKE FOREST — The Wake Forest CROP Hunger Walk 2013 is set for Sunday, September 29, with sign-in at 2:30 p.m. and step-off at 3 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to join in.
This year’s walk begins and ends at Wake Forest United Methodist Church, 905 South Main Street. Goals for this year are at least 250 walkers and $12,500 in donations.
Wake Forest and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith-community CROP Hunger Walks, following the theme Ending hunger one step at a time.
Twenty-five percent of the funds raised here will go to the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry in Wake Forest. Other funds will provide programs around the world and in the U.S. to end hunger and poverty and to provide disaster relief.
Walkers will sign in at the welcome tent at WFUMC at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 29. All are encouraged to bring along nonperishable foods to load into the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry van.
Also, under the tent, walkers may participate in writing notes of encouragement to U.S. soldiers overseas through a ministry known as M2M, Ministry to Military.
