The Weyauwega-Fremont area is working to raise funds for local and worldwide outreach through the Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Walk on Saturday, Oct. 15.
The public is invited to join other walkers at 9 a.m. that day for registration at First Presbyterian Church, 200 S. Pine St.
The walk will begin at approximately 9:20 a.m.
Those who participate will choose how far they walk – between one and five kilometers.
The point of the walk is is to “walk because they walk.”
People in developing countries typically walk as many as six miles a day to get food, water, fuel and to take their goods to market.
A number of people from area churches will be participating in this month’s CROP Walk.
People may sponsor them with a donation or make a donation directly to Church World Service/CROP on the day of the walk. Donations may also be mailed to the church, before Oct. 15.
After the walk, refreshments will be provided.
Twenty-five percent of the donations that are collected locally will remain in the community to help such organizations as the Weymont Food Pantry.
