The 23rd Annual CROP Walk is Sunday, Oct. 27 with walkers meeting at 1:25 p.m. at St. Augustine’s Church on Franklin street in Vineyard Haven. The walk route is to Oak Bluffs and back again.

Pledges benefit local organizations working to alleviate hunger on the Island. Last year walkers and supporters raised $23,447, which brought the 22-year total raised to $359,085. A group of generous Islanders are pledging 20 cents for every dollar raised this year.

For information or for forms for sponsoring walkers, call the Rev. Alden Besse at 508-693-3930.
