Annual CROP Walk set for Sunday

The annual CROP?Walk will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, west of the office at Marion County Lake.

A devotional will be offered prior to the start of the walk.

The purpose of the walk is ?to have a nice scenic walk around the lake and doing what is necessary to help those in need,? according to organizers.

CROP Walks help support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially the hunger-fighting development efforts of partner agencies in more than 80 countries.

Contributors may designate their own denominational relief agency to receive the contributions they raise prior to the event.

In addition, each local CROP Walk can choose to retain up to 25 percent of the funds it raises to support the Marion County Emergency Food Bank.
