NewsCROP Hunger Walk: Ending hunger one step at a time

The Greater Triangle CROP Hunger Walk will not be held in person this year due to the pandemic, but don’t worry! CUCC has come up with innovative ways to support local and international hunger relief organizations, including Church World Service, a multi-denominational program of which the United Church of Christ is a member.

Here’s how you can support CUCC’s efforts to end hunger:

– Join the CUCC CROP Walk team and ask family and friends to support you through a donation. You can register for the CUCC team here.

– Enjoy an Oktoberfest meal after the service on October 31 and then walk 1, 2 or 3.5 miles around the church neighborhood. (Suggested walk routes will be provided, or you can make up your own.) If you don’t have time to walk on October 31, please fit in a walk when convenient.

– If you don’t feel like walking, you can support our team by sponsoring an individual walker or the team as a whole.  Support a walker here.

You can also make a donation through the church’s web site by selecting “CROP Walk” from the pull-down menu next to “Give to the General Fund.”

Donations can also be given to coordinators Mike Schafale or Merrilee Jacobson each Sunday. Please make checks payable to “CWS/CROP Hunger Walk.”

And, finally, items collected for a now-cancelled church yard sale will be available on October 31 with all proceeds going to the CROP Walk.

For more information or for help registering, contact Mike Schafale ( or Merrilee Jacobson (
