For their first service project, Trinity Hall students will participate in the Red Bank Crop Walk on Sunday, October 20. The Crop Walk is a 5-mile-long walk/run to combat hunger in Monmouth County, NJ and around the world.
Our students have been learning facts about hunger locally and globally in theology class and have discussed how to live out Catholic social teachings. In groups, the girls designed banners illustrating the theme of this year’s walk – “Ending hunger one step at a time” – to display at the Crop Walk. Trinity Hall has been collecting donations of rice, beans and peanut butter and will bring those items to the walk on Sunday, where they will be distributed to local food pantries within Monmouth County. Trinity Hall students and faculty members will also be working at a water station to provide refreshment and encouragement to event participants who are walking to end hunger.
The Red Bank Crop Walk will start at Red Bank Regional High School. Registration begins at 1:00pm; the walk starts at 2:00pm. If you would like to donate rice, beans or peanut butter, you can drop them off at Trinity Hall by Friday, October 18. For more information about the Red Bank Crop Walk, go to www.redbankcropwalk.com
