------------------------------------------

We believe in ending hunger. In 2020, we will continue to fight against the new challenges of disease and disaster that leave people hungry.

Join with us in raising funds to help neighbors near and far get the food they need this year.

More than ever, people of hope need to come together to help end hunger one step at a time.  The Dutchess County Interfaith CROP Walk will celebrate its forty-fourth year of walking, but this year will be like no other.  With COVID concerns and hunger crises right in our back yard there is greater challenge and more urgency.  We need your help!  With many faith communities, social service agencies and schools locked down, or on compromised schedules, we need to get the word out about our CROP walk and we need to see greater financial response to the needs before us.

We will have a walk on Sunday October 18.  It will be virtual and (hopefully) actual.  Our walk allows for people to social distance, but any who want to walk in their own neighborhood and in their own way are welcome to join in.  Last year we raised over $57,000 and we hope to surpass that this year in these trying times.  This money supports hunger work locally, nationally and internationally.

Let me know if you are willing to help. Thank you so much.

Gratefully,
Taylor W. Holbrook
