Looking to make a difference in these trying times, the Lyme-Old Lyme CROP Hunger Walk is an ecumenical and interfaith effort to raise money to help stop hunger and poverty here in our community and around the world, through self-help initiatives. A portion of the funds raised in Lyme-Old Lyme will go to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and national hunger relief agencies.
All are welcome to join this reflective walk co-organized by Christ the King Catholic Church, St. Ann’s Episcopal Church, First Congregational Church of Old Lyme, Lyme Congregational Church and the South Lyme Union Chapel.
The Crop Walk will begin at St. Ann’s Episcopal Church, 85 Shore Rd, Old Lyme, at 10 a.m., and will continue on Johnnycake Hill to Lyme Street past Christ the King Church to the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme and then follow the same route to return gain to St. Ann’s.
Donations of non-perishable foods are being accepted, and envelopes for monetary donations are available at each of the participating churches. Donations can also be made at the Crop Walk on the day of the event.
