Families attending the CROP Walk will enjoy a community potluck dinner, team and board games, and live music throughout the day. Events begin at 4 p.m. at the Log Cabin at Harmon Field.


As well as raising funds for our local community, people attending CROP Walk for Hunger are encouraged to bring items that will help flood-damaged schools, churches, homes and businesses to clean up from the devastating effects of Hurricane Joaquin. Items badly needed include: bleach, cleaning supplies, travel-size toiletries, N95 masks, rubber gloves, heavy duty garbage bags, bottled water and non-perishable foods. Please do not contribute clothing at this time.


Donation boxes for flood relief supplies will be available near the entrance to the Log Cabin. In addition, donation boxes are conveniently located in the front lobby of St. Luke’s Hospital.


The CROP Walk for Hunger is sponsored by the Thermal Belt Ministerial Association to provide for those less fortunate and in need of food. For more information, please call Pam Justice at 859-6654.
