Mark your calendars for the 2017 CROP Walk taking place on Sunday, October 8. Registration will begin at 1:30 p.m., with the walk starting at 2:00. It will begin and end at First Presbyterian Church on Jefferson Street.
The Roanoke Valley CROP Hunger Walk is a community-wide event spon- sored by Church World Service and or- ganized by local volunteers to raise funds to end hunger, both locally and worldwide. Seventy-five percent of funds raised will go worldwide. The re- mainder will benefit two local organiza- tions: RAM House and Roanoke Com- munity Gardens Association.
To make a donation online, go to www.crophungerwalk.org/roanokeva/ and look for Oak Grove COB on the list of teams in order to donate. You may also register online.
Missy Lankford has envelopes for all who volunteer to walk and are willing to gather sponsors and donations. Call her if you plan to participate, as a consent form must be filled out.
