A Different Crop Walk for 2020!
We may be masked, but hunger isn’t.
On Sunday, September 27, First Covenant will participate in the CROP/Hunger Walk. This year we will gather at the church at 1:00 p.m., grab a bottled water, and walk in small groups for an hour through the church neighborhood due to Presque Isle’s COVID-19 event restrictions. Upon return to the church, the Hospitality/Membership team will have snack bags and juice waiting for walkers. There will be an opportunity for brief social-distanced visiting. The walk’s main purpose is to raise funds to alleviate hunger locally and throughout the world since 842 million people find themselves coping with daily hunger and malnutrition. Twenty five percent of our donations will remain in Erie County to fund agencies and ministries that combat hunger here. Globally, CROP/Hunger Walk donations enable Church World Services to continue to invest in proper nutrition for children so they can grow strong and healthy. Communities are also empowered with skills and tools they need to make lasting changes that will feed them forever. Please consider joining “Team FPCC” in walking (masked and social distanced) this year. Let’s combat hunger by walking or supporting walkers in the CROP/Hunger Walk. The walk is for everyone; young and old. Families and singles. Students. Friends. If you cannot walk on September 27, you can walk at another time, at a place of your choosing.
Walker forms are available from the church office Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Or have one mailed by calling the church. Tim Tracy can order you a Crop Walk t-shirt for $10 or a special mask for $6.
Bill Tauber has set up a “FPCC team” on the Crop website for donations, or you can sponsor a person directly who is walking. Just go to https://www.crophungerwalk.org/eriepa/ Donate and click on “teams” and “First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant”. Or click on “walker” and type a walker’s name you wish to sponsor.
First Covenant has a long history of being a leader in this cause. Help keep this tradition alive by generously sponsoring those who walk for First Covenant.
