CROP Hunger Walk Coming to Cobleskill

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/5/24 | 4/5/24

COBLESKILL — The in-person 2024 Schoharie  County Aggie Scott Memorial CROP Hunger Walk will start and end at Cobleskill United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 5.

Registration will start at 1:15. A short program will begin at 1:30 with the Walk starting immediately thereafter.

The short program will honor the late Aggie Scott and Lee Empie for their amazing fundraising skills for past CROP Hunger Walks. These two senior citizens  became local CROP Hunger Walk legends in their own lifetimes for their fundraising  efforts to fight hunger locally and worldwide. 

Memories of Aggie and Lee will no doubt be with the local CROP Hunger Walk supporters  as long as there is a Schoharie County Aggie Scott Memorial CROP Hunger Walk. 

Twenty-five percent of all money raised will stay in Schoharie County. Food pantries at the local Catholic Charities office  and Cobleskill United Methodist Church will each keep ten percent of all money raised. The food pantry at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Richmondville will keep five percent.

The rest of the money will go to Church World Service in Indiana to fight hunger in the USA and  countries around the world.

Every Walker who turns in a donation envelope  on May 5 will get a 2024 CROP Hunger Walk tee shirt and at least one never-worn  so-called vintage tee shirt from a past CROP Hunger Walk.   

The  Walk will cover about 2.5 miles north of Main Street.

Again this year the local Walk will be either in-person  in Cobleskill or virtual anywhere. 

In a virtual CROP Hunger Walk the participant can walk any distance any time and anywhere  before May 5. Each virtual Walker, however,  must turn in the donation envelope by 1:30 at the Methodist church to pick up the two CROP tee shirts on CROP Hunger Walk Sunday.

A virtual Walker can go any distance. No one from the planning committee  will ask a Walker about  the distance covered. 

Members of the local Schoharie  County  Aggie Scott Memorial CROP Hunger Walk planning team are Tracy Smith, Becky Leggieri and John Jarvis.
