CROP Walk returns this Sunday

MOOERS The annual Northern Tier CROP Walk will take place this Sunday, Oct. 5, beginning at Mooers United Methodist Church. The four-mile walk will begin at the church, located at 12 East St., at 2 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to local food pantries in addition to sponsorship money collected. The walk supports Church World Service, an international organization that provides assistance to refugees and victims of natural disasters and teaches self-sustaining technologies to Third World countries. Twenty-five percent of money raised from the walk benefits food pantries in the Northern Tier, said Those interested in participating in the walk or making a donation may contact the Rev. Al Johnson, local CROP Walk organizer, at 236-7129 or via e-mail at pastoral@twcny.rr.com. Information may also be obtained by the Rev. Steve Loan, pastor of Three Steeples United Methodist Church, Champlain, by calling 298-8655 or sending an e-mail to steeples3@primelink1.net.
