Greater Middletown CROP Hunger Walk

Hey everyone,
I got an email yesterday from the Program and Events Coordinator at the Admission's office about the Greater Middletown CROP Hunger Walk that is scheduled for April 27th at 1:30 pm on the South Green in Middletown. Neighbors will be walking together to take a stand against hunger in different parts of the world. The objective is to raise awareness and funds for humanitarian assistance. The walk will be supporting 11 community centers in IDP camps in Darfur. You can find more information on the group organizing it here - http://www.churchworldservice.org/CROP/index.html.

Stephanie said that it would be wonderful if members of STAND could take part. She has more information for us and collection envelopes if people are interested.

It sounds like a really good way to build awareness about Darfur in Middletown and meet with people who we might be able to collaborate with in the future. So it is just something to think about till next Monday and if you are interested, feel free to leave a quick comment saying that you are and I will touch base with Stephanie and get more detailed info to bring to next week's meeting. Thanks!
