The 33rd annual CROP Walk will take place in Westborough Sunday Oct. 18 beginning and ending at the Evangelical Congregational Church, West Main Street. Registration starts at 12:30; the walk commences at 1 p.m.
CROP (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty) was born in 1947 out of the fields of Middle America in response to the needs of hungry and suff ering people in post-war Europe and Asia.
The event links together the interfaith community and residents of all ages and abilities, taking them through the main streets and back roads of Westborough. Twenty-five percent of the money raised goes to the local food pantry, a crucial contribution during dire economic times.
So don’t just talk the talk. Come walk the walk. Please call me at 508- 898-9895 with questions.
