What does that mean??
We will not gather together on May 3rd. It’s just too risky.
So what we DO want you to do? First - Be sure to set up your Walk page online (if you haven’t already) so that you don’t have to handle cash and checks and to make it easy for people to join your virtual team/donate to you.
Along with your team, come up with an alternative way to participate. Continue to recruit walkers and get sponsors, as always, just for an alternative activity.
Here are a couple ideas team captains have suggested:
• Plan a hike on a local trail where social distancing is possible – share about it on social media and in emails.
• Ask individual walkers to come up with their own activity, and PLEASE share your/their ideas with us to perhaps inspire other walkers.
• Have your team (or individual walkers) video themselves talking about why they participate in the CROP Walk and why it is important to them. Post it using #EndHungerNow and #VirtualCROPHungerWalk. (The National CWS office may share it!) Make sure to tag your friends and potential donors and include your personal/team fundraising page link.
This is new to all of us, and we welcome ideas and suggestions about how to virtually bring everyone together while we help as many hungry people here in Rockland County and around the world as we possibly can. We are being called, more than ever, to step up and make a REAL difference!! Our local hunger agencies and CWS will need our support even more after this crisis is over.
Together, we can help end hunger in our community and around the world.
