Each year, our Shoreline community comes together to raise money and the awareness for hunger relief locally and around the world through the Hunger CROP Hunger Walk. TBT is participating in one of the 1,000 CROP Hunger Walks that happen every year in the United States. Walkers pledge dollars for their participation in our 2.3 mile walk. Our steps symbolize the daily journey others must make for food and clean water. SUNDAY, October 14, 2018 beginning at 1:15 pm Jacob’s Beach, Seaside Ave., Guilford, CT – to the Green and back. One-fourth of the funds raised stays in our community to support local & hunger and poverty fighting programs. The local agencies are CCA, who is Guilford Interfaith Volunteers, Madison Food Bank and the Food Pantry of No. Branford. The remaining money is used by CROP to help families in the United States and around the world who are victims of disasters like Hurricane Sandy, the earthquake in Haiti, and refugees fleeing war or famine. CROP also supports development projects in the world’s poorest communities - agricultural training, health clinics, micro-businesses, schools, and fresh water wells.
Who Should Participate? EVERYONE! Please join Rabbi Offner as she offers the opening prayer.
CROP Hunger Walks are community events involving everyone who wants to fight hunger around the block and around the world. Our walk encourages teams and individuals from public and private schools, civic and cultural groups, area businesses, and all faith groups. For more information, contact: Tslids@gmail.com
