To the Times of Ti:
If all 36.2 million Americans faced with food insecurity stood in line at a food pantry in New York City, the line would stretch to Los Angeles and back twice.
The CROP Hunger Walk will give everyone a chance to show their concern for the needy. You can walk 1,2 or 4 miles or donate to someone who is walking with us. Twenty five percent of the funds we collect will be given to the Hague, Crown Point and Ticonderoga food pantries.
The other 75 percent will be used in other parts of the US and the world. Each day almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes. . . . one every 5 seconds. Illness, disasters and political upheaval are some of the causes of poverty.
Join us with your friends and family on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m. for the CROP Hunger Walk. We’ll gather and register in front of the 1888 building, the Heritage Museum.
