Crop Walk Thank You!
Sincere thanks to all who contributed or lent a hand to fund raise for the Freehold Area CROP Walk to help stop hunger! Together, our parish and school served as
T-shirt sponsors, solicited outside donations, collected peanut butter, accepted donations from "Spirit Walkers" at all of the Masses on the weekend of the walk, and walked in the CROP Walk. Special thanks to Assistant Scoutmaster, Tom Forte, and Boy Scout Troop 18 who every year assist with this Walk. Our combined effort makes a tremendous difference in how much we are able to contribute to the needs of the poor. This couldn't be done without the help of the whole team!
The preliminary Crop Walk Report from Chairperson, Ret. Pastor Patricia Medley, indicates this year's total to be approximately $22,669.25. St. Rose of Lima won the Gilded Sneaker Award for Most Walkers for the second year in a row, and our canine representative won second place in the Ending World Hunger Photo Contest! Spirit walker donations received from our parishioners on the day of the walk totaled, $1,333.25. The combined total for the school and parish is not yet known.
Donations are still being accepted and can be made on-line at crophungerwalk.org/freeholdnj or by mailing checks made to CWS/CROP to CROP Walk/Medley at 22 Story Court, Freehold, NJ 07728-5322. Please add St. Rose of Lima Church to the memo line as the deadline to compete for the Gilded Sneaker Award for the Team with the Highest Fund-Raising has been extended to
Thank you all for your part in aiding those who are suffering here in Freehold and
around the world!
