The 38th Annual Hershey/Hummelstown CROP Hunger Walk is right around the corner! On Sunday, Oct 22 churches from the Hershey/Hummelstown area will once again join Church World Service to raise funds to end hunger around the world and here at home. 25% of the funds raised stay here to support local food banks and feeding programs.

During the pandemic fundraising lagged, but the number of hungry people continued to grow. The Hershey/Hummelstown CROP Hunger Walk planning team hopes to get back on track this year by increasing the number of walkers and donations. Our community goal is $10,000. We can meet that goal with your help:

  1. Mark your calendar and join the Walk on Sunday, October 22 at 2 pm on the Milton Hershey School grounds. 
  2. Invite family, friends, and leashed pets to join you.
  3. Request donations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  4. Register for the walk online or at the registration table in the Narthex between services and after the 10:30 am service. Registration and donations will also be accepted at the CROP Walk. Look for the registration table near the start line.
  5. Make a donation: you can give online or make checks payable to Derry Church, notated CROP Hunger Walk 2023.
  6. Contact Marilyn Koch, Carl Rohr, or Jane Robertson if you have questions.

Please support the Walk in any way you are able.  It’s easy, it’s fun, and it does a whole lot of good!
