Baraboo Walks with the World: CROP Walk

Have fun and raise funds to alleviate hunger in Baraboo and around the world.  CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty.  Twenty-five percent of funds collected by walkers go to Baraboo Food Pantry, the rest to Church World Service.

Our Baraboo walk is October 14.  Registration will begin at 12:30 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on 8th Street, walking by 1 pm.  Two routes are planned: a short 1 mile, and a longer 3 mile walk, along residential streets from and back to St. Paul’s with stops to learn more about CROP and the needs they respond to.  Help by walking, lending a hand on CROP Walk day, and/or by donations.

 

Sunday School Forms Crop Walk Team

The Sunday School class has formed a team to participate in this year’s Crop Walk.  They will name their team and brainstorm ways to encourage others to join in the effort to feed hungry people.  Current Sunday School members, Confirmands and friends are all welcome to become part of the team.  On the big day, Oct. 14, they’ll be wearing our new church T-shirts and demonstrating what “To believe is to care,

to care is to Do” means.  Last year the children raised over $800 ! and we’re sure that they’ll be even more successful this year.
