CROP Walk of Bethlehem

Crop Walk 2013 is October 13th!

Fight hunger locally and globally by walking or by being a sponsor in the Bethlehem CROP Walk. One quarter of the funds raised benefit local food banks and soup kitchens. The remainder of the funds supports humanitarian causes and disaster relief worldwide. Our church has been involved for 28 years. The Bethlehem Walk has raised over half a million dollars in the past 29 years.


Last year New Bethany Ministries, Trinity Soup Kitchen, Salvation Army of Bethlehem, West Side Food Bank, Victory House, Northeast Ministries, and Pennsylvania Avenue Interfaith Food Pantry received support from the walkers' efforts. The remainder of the money is used for disaster relief and to relieve hunger throughout the nation and the world.


Lunch will be provided at the church for all of our walkers at noon on October 13. At 1 p.m. we will meet under the Hill‐to‐Hill Bridge on Spring Street. Transportation is available to the Walk. The Walk is 5K, but there is a shorter alternate route of about a mile.


Contact Liza Holzinger @ for a sponsor sheet or for more information.
