Area residents are gearing up to join in the Charlevoix County CROP Walk, Saturday, September 24 at 9:00 am.

Organized locally, the Charlevoix County CROP Walk has set a goal of recruiting 100 walkers to raise $25,000, which will work to combat hunger here in our community as well as around the world.

Twenty-five percent of all monies raised here in Charlevoix County will come back locally to The Good Samaritan of Ellsworth, Care and Share of East Jordan, the Charlevoix Food Pantry, Seventh Day Adventist, Boyne Food Pantry in Boyne City and Boyne Falls Food Pantry, Boyne Falls.

Last year, over 80 walkers and volunteers raised more than $23,00.00, of which $5,750.00 was divide between our local food pantries.

The remaining funds helped to combat hunger and poor sanitation around the world, including the United States.
