Hanover Area CROP Walk 

The Hanover Area CROP Walk will be held on Sunday at Codorus State Park. 

Registration will begin at 1 p.m. at St. Paul's (Dubs) Union Church Annex, 1958 Dubs Church Road, in Hanover. 

The walk will be held rain or shine. 

The CROP Walk is an opportunity for everyone to show their commitment to stopping hunger.  Seventy-five percent of the funds collected will be distributed by Church World Service both in the USA and worldwide. They assist those in poverty and those who are refugees. Twenty-five percent of collections will stay in the Hanover area and will be distributed to these four local agencies: the Provide a Lunch Program at the Hanover Area Council of Churches, God’s Meal Barrel, Head Start Program and Ruth’s Harvest Backpack Meals.
