CROP Walk 2016 on March 20
In 2015, Pilgrim raised over $10,000 — more than any Durham congregation of any size for CROP Walk. In 2016, we will walk together on March 20. On Feb 28, a special CROP Walk coffee hour after worship will be hosted by the Board of Christian Service.
We raise funds every year by participating in CROP walk. Twenty-five percent of the funds stay in Durham (for food agencies like Meals on Wheels), and the remaining seventy-five percent goes to Church World Service. Durham, Charlotte and Greensboro are among the five highest-producing CROP walks in the USA. In 2015, the total raised by Durham CROP walk was a remarkable $154,540!
Pilgrim was awarded Golden Sneaker award in 2015, as well as every year from 2013 back to 2006 in the small church category by Durham’s CROP walk, for fund-raising to help hungry people. Much gratitude to the organizers, donors, walkers and everyone who contributed!
