Many thanks to all who walked on October 23, in the annual CROP Walk for the Hungry, and to everyone who contributed as their sponsors. Our walkers from Leola UMC received donations totaling $2,420.00.

Church World Service will return 25% of the funds raised by Leola area churches to the Conestoga Valley food pantry. CWS ministers in some 80 countries around the world. In the last 20 years CROP Hunger Walks have raised over $294 milion to assist those struggling to feed their families, both at home in the USA and around the world.

Those walking from Leola U. M. Church this year included : Ron and Elise Blanshine, Ann Denlinger, Carolyn Fetrow, Renie Fuller, Lee and Lorraine Gernert, Erin Hoxie, Bob and Lois Kerchner, Sue Kurtz, Tim Smith and George Weaver. 

Again, thanks to all who contributed to the annual CROP Hunger Walk.
