Teams may decide to organize in-person walks at a date, time and location of their choosing. Twenty-five percent of the money raised will be donated to two Freehold-based charities supported by the sponsoring clergy associations: Open Door food pantry and Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program.

This year, some of the national and international CROP money raised will also be used to support staff members who are already working with Afghan refugees and meeting their needs.

Materials and registration information is available at

Donations of shelf-stable food, diapers and toiletries may be donated directly to Open Door food bank, 39 Throckmorton St., Freehold Borough, or to the charity of your choice. Checks should be made out to CWS/CROP. For more information, email or call or text 732-822-0711.
