Area churches plan Crop Walk

The Northwest Tama County Ministerial Association is planning its 2021 Crop Walk. Churches participating are Gladbrook UMC, Chapel Church, Christ Lutheran Church, Salem Church, Peace Church and Garwin UMC who will be the host church.

Crop Walks are ecumenical, interfaith community events. Undesignated funds help support the worldwide programs of Church World Service.

In partnership, CWS supports self-help development, meets emergency needs and helps address the root causes of poverty and powerlessness.

Millions of people around the world walk long distances every day: to get water for daily needs; to bring home food for their families; to find safe shelter in times of war or disaster; to find wood for fuel and fodder for livestock; to go to school; to farm distant fields; to take goods and produce to market; or to find medical care when illness strikes.

All ages, young and old alike, are welcome to join the Crop Walk on Oct. 3rd. Donations can be dropped off at any of the participating churches. The Garwin UMC is in-charge of the refreshments.
