Somerset Presbyterian Church Hosts 44th Annual CROP Walk Fundraiser

CROP walkers gather outside Somerset Presbyterian Church before staring the walk.

Dozens of volunteers walked to erase hunger Oct 22 during the Somerset Presbyterian Church’s 44th annual CROP Walk.

Walkers started at the church, located on John F. Kennedy Boulevard, and walked either the full 6.2 miles or the 2-mile mini-walk.

Volunteers came from a number of township houses of worship, including Middlebush Reformed Church, First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens, Somerset Presbyterian Church, St. Matthias Roman Catholic Church and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. There were also volunteers from Boy Scout and Cun Scout troop 113 and the Central Jersey Enrichment Center, located at Somerset Presbyterian.

The Franklin Food Bank will receive 25 percent of the event’s proceeds, with the remainder going to Church World Service.

The Franklin Reporter & Advocate spoke with Deacon Linda and Tom Hauck of the church, and Kevin McGuinness of the Franklin Food Bank.
