The Old Steeple Community Church will sponsor the Riverhead CROP Walk (Community Response to help Overcome Poverty), on Sunday, October 20, beginning at 2 PM. All money raised will go toward the Church World Service and Riverhead food pantries.

“Old Steeple church has been sponsoring the Riverhead CROP Walk for many years, as we feel that it is a worthy cause which benefits local food pantries, as well as national and international need. It is part of the Church World Service, which assists people in need worldwide. Millions of people have to walk long distances to obtain basic needs like clean water and medical help, so if we, who are so much better off, can walk a short distance to raise money for them, we should make the effort to do so,” said Liz Wines, Riverhead CROP Walk coordinator.

The group of walkers will meet at the Riverhead Congregational Church on Main Street, with registration beginning at 1 PM. It is a 2.5-mile walk. Learn more at
