2019 Crop Walk October 20, 2019 @ 1:00 PM
Time to Sign up! Or, Support a Walker!

This year’s walk begins at Trinity UMC on Sumner Ave., Springfield (registration 1:00 PM, walk begins at 2:00 PM), and we will walk along Sumner Ave. and part of Forest Park.  Proceeds from the Walk help to fight hunger and food insecurity worldwide, and a portion goes locally to three organizations–Open Pantry, The Food Bank of Western MA, and Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen.

We encourage you to visit First Church’s CROP Walk page and sign up to walk or make a donation to support a walker: https://www.crophungerwalk.org/springfieldma/Team/View/112887/First-Church-in-Longmeadow-UCC

Last year Team First Church raised the second most money, and we won the Gold Sneaker! (The year before we came in first!) Let’s show Greater Springfield how to do it again this year.

Questions? Want to donate to a walker or sign up to walk? Please see Marilyn Paul-Lewis or email at marilyn@firstchurchlongmeadow.org.
