C3 CROP Hunger Walk - helping end hunger one step at a time: Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013
This is the first time in more than 25 years that a CROP Hunger Walk has been held in our area. This year we join 2,000 communities including Carroll, Denison, Harlan, Audubon and Atlantic in having a walk in our community. In order to participate, walkers need to sign up and pick up fundraising packets from any of the Manning churches. It is not too late to join in. The Manning C3 CROP Hunger Walk begins at the Manning City Park shelter house at 1:30 pm on Sunday, Sept. 29. C3 is also seeking donations of canned goods for the food pantry at New Opportunities and Community of Concern in Carroll. There are many ways for you to participate in the CROP Walk. To mention a few: you can cheer on the walkers the day of the walk, support a walker with your donation, donate canned goods, support spiritually during the walk remembering those for whom we walk, and/or attend on Sunday and join in any way. 25% of proceeds from walk go towards local food pantries.
You are also invited to the Taco Bar/Ice Cream bar Kickoff for the Crop Walk at the United Methodist Church. Free Will offering
Serving from 11:30 – 1:00.
Proceeds go towards Crop Walk, local food pantries, and Young Christians Weekend for YG in Branson.

Be there early for the best selection of baked goods and produce.
