Registration begins at 8:30 am at Trinity Episcopal Church, 33 Linwood Ave., Whitinsville. Walkers are to bring all donations they have collected for the Crop Hunger Walk with them when they register.
The Crop Hunger Walk provides millions of dollars a year to 1,900 food pantries in the U.S., including food pantries in Douglas, Northbridge and Uxbridge. The Northbridge Association of Churches has been the local sponsor for the Walk for 43 years.
Walkers from the Blackstone Valley will join with 1,000 communities across the country to support self-help programs in 35 countries organized by Church World Service. In many developing nations, people walk as many as six miles a day to get food and water. We walk because they walk. You can make a difference in someone's life by making a donation.
