New Bern CROP Hunger Walk

About New Bern CROP Hunger Walk

The needs of the hungry in New Bern, our surrounding communities, and worldwide are greater than ever! Join us for the Annual New Bern CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday, September 25th at Union Point Park, 210 E. Front Street, New Bern, NC. The CROP Walk is sponsored by Church World Service and hosted locally by Faith Connection. Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to this fun, family-friendly event with music and activities for all ages.

Preparing for the Walk:
  • Register and set up your team page online so you don’t have to handle cash and checks.

  • Set your fundraising goal and recruit walkers and sponsors to support you.

Instructions for Walk Donations
  • Please encourage walkers to donate online so you don’t have to handle cash and checks.

You may bring checks to the walk or mail checks to Robert Gillis, CROP Walk Treasurer, c/o Faith Connection, P. O. Box 13004, New Bern, NC 28561.
