Calling all Families to the CROP Hunger Walk!
Our families at Albany UU know how important it is to help our children develop empathy and compassion for others. Participating in family activities that offer both tangible and symbolic support for those in need is a great way to reinforce a message of caring. The CROP Hunger Walk raises dollars to support hunger relief programs, right here in the Capital District and around the world. The act of walking also puts us in solidarity with those who struggle every day to feed their families, who often must walk to meet their basic survival needs.
The Albany CROP Hunger Walk is coming up on Sunday, May 6. It starts and ends near church, takes place in early afternoon, and there’s a lunch in Channing Hall after the service, but before the Walk. The regular Walk route is about 3 miles, but there’s a one-mile option, and the route can always be shortened to accommodate the capabilities of your family. We encourage all families (and everyone else, too!) to sign up for our CROP Walk team (Team UU). There will be a Walk table at coffee hour starting in April, and information can be obtained at any time by contacting Dawn Dana (518-446-0382). Go Team UU!
