Roscommon County CROP Hunger Walk 

CROP Walk 2017!

This was our 23rd Annual Roscommon County Crop Hunger Walk.  The walk was held on September 24, at the new location of Markey Memorial Park in Markey Township, Roscommon.  Walkers enjoyed the park surroundings and paved trails, as well as refreshments and fellowship after the walk.  Although the weather was very hot, we persevered and enjoyed the day.

There were 12 churches participating in the Walk, as well as our Project Hope/Roscommon County Food Pantry volunteers who set up their water station and snack table at our halfway point.

We had a total of 79 participants, including 20 youth.

Our Wrap up dinner was held at Buccilli's on October 11, and the additional funds were added to our totals.  Our total funds raised this year, including those raised by online donations, is $8,849.88.

Our local ministries that benefit from the Crop Walk are the food pantry at the Congregational Church,  Roscommon Food Pantry (Project Hope), and St. Vincent de Paul in Roscommon.   Twenty-five percent of the total proceeds from the 2017 walk will be distributed among these three ministries.

Good Shepherd UMC was #1 in the number of walkers with 27 participants.  Good Shepherd also raised the most funds with a total of $2,118 in donations.  The 1st Congregational Youth Group won the pizza party at Buccilli's for the youth group that raised the most funds.  They raised $600.36.

We are very grateful to everyone who supported or participated in this important ministry.
