Late Breaking News

Get Your  CROP Hunger Walk Materials

Need a Captain’s Packet or additional materials?  Stop by either First Presbyterian Church (305 E Main Street) or Westminster Presbyterian Church (3639 Old Chapel Hill Rd) during regular business hours, and there will be a table of materials for you to choose from.  If there is something missing that you need that is not there, please contact Bob Newlin (bnewlin4@gmail.com or 919 451 7839).

T Shirts  Walk shirts are available every Friday from 2-4 p.m. and every Saturday from 9:30-noon.  Come to St. Pauls Lutheran Church (1200 W Cornwallis) and go to the TRAILER in the back parking lot.  If you have a large order you would like to have pulled and ready for you when you get there, call it in to 919 384 0424 or email Arnie at arniejo14@gmail.com .  We ask for a minimum $3 donation for each shirt.  Checks can be made out to DHTF.  Receipts are available upon request.

Walker Envelopes  These are new this year.  They’re smaller, they include price points for what donations of different levels might provide and they do NOT have a place for walkers to collect the names and pledges of their donors.  I have attached a form where they can do that with this email, and it will be available on our website shortly.

Waiver Forms  Since there is no tear off sheet to turn in the day of the walk, team captains are asked to use a waiver form (attached and on the website shortly) to get signatures for any walker who DID NOT register online (or their parent if the walker is under 18).  The team captain should turn the form in at the registration table the day of the walk.

New CWS Walker and Captain Recognition Program  – There are two sheets in your captain’s packet outlining this program.  Individuals and team captains can win prizes based on how much they/their team raise AS LONG AS IT IS RECORDED ONLINE.  Money raised offline will be included in your total IF you are registered online and you manually enter the donations on your page.  (When you are logged in, under MyHQ, select Enter Offline Donation).

Food Drive  – This year we are adding a Food Drive during the Global Village gathering before the walk.  The Durham Lions Club will be collecting nonperishable food items that will be donated to the Durham Public School Food Pantries.  If you choose to participate, you can either have walkers bring items with them on the day of the walk, or collect food items before the walk, and deliver them the day of.  Call 919 451 7203 with any questions or to make other arrangements.

Speakers  – A number of groups have requested someone come talk about what CROP Walk does and why we walk.  We have speakers available to come talk to your group.  Please call 919 451 7203 to make a request.

Abraham’s Well  – Durham author (and face-painter at the CROP Walk) Sharon Ewell Foster has released a 10th anniversary edition of a book she wrote about the Trail of Tears.  With the topic of refugees being so prominent today, it is a great way to understand the topic through the eyes of a 12 year old girl experiencing it.  Sharon is donating 50% of the proceeds from the book to CWS/CROP, so it also supports the work we do.  She has offered to come talk to groups who want to discuss the book.  See attached flyer for more details.

Bread for the World  –  Our partner organization in fighting hunger is holding their State Convention here in Durham at St.Philips Episcopal Church on March 11th.  You can register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2017-north-carolina-bread-for-the-world-conventioncarolina-del-norte-2017-convencion-de-pan-para-el-registration-30316352025 .

Durham’s 43rd Annual CROP Hunger Walk starts at 2:00 PM on the Quad in front of the Chapel on Duke University’s West Campus. With last year’s walk, the cumulative amount raised for the hungry since its start in 1975 surpassed the $4 million dollar mark.
