We recently received the following information on the results of the C.R.O.P. Walk which was held in November 2012.


‚ÄúThank you to the 50 walkers who participated in 2012 Carlsbad C.R.O.P. Hunger Walk held in November.  Several churches participated in this hunger event in our community:  First Presbyterian Church, First Christian Church, St. Edward Catholic Church, St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church, Epworth United Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church, and the Carlsbad Mennonite Church.  We raised $4,991.00 and Thrivent for Lutherans contributed an additional $800.00 due to the community effort.  The total for 2012 Community Response for Overcoming Poverty was $5,791.00.  This is sponsored by Church World Services, which involves about 30 national churches and synagogues.  There are about 2,000 walks across the nation throughout the year, with proceeds going to those in need in the United States as well as around the world.  Twenty-five percent of the proceeds was given to the Carlsbad Community Kitchen, which amounted to $1,447.75.  Thanks for your generosity!!  Hope to see you in 2013!
