22 walkers from Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church participated in the Bridgeport CROP Hunger walk on Sunday May 7th and spent a beautiful afternoon together with dozens of additional walking teams from the area. We walked two sunny miles around the Brooklawn section of Bridgeport, with our start/finish host, United Congregational Church. It was great to make new friends, as well! Don Hastings, the Crop Walk team leader announced that fundraising from our church exceeded $4,000 to help alleviate hunger locally and worldwide! Well done!

About Crop Walk: CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised is returned to the host community to support local hunger fighting efforts.
