Members of the parish of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church raised money to help combat world hunger through the annual CROP Walk, held Sunday afternoon in Newton. 

St. Stephen’s was among several denominations throughout Jasper County who participated.

The walkers from St. Stephen’s included Rochelle Dungan, Jonnelle Farver and Barry Hurto.  Together they collected $275 in pledges for the cause.

CROP, which stands for Christian Relief Overseas Project, was started after World War II to help meet hunger needs all over the world.  In recent years, it has partnered with Church World Service to continue its mission of helping to alleviate hunger in parts of the globe through education.
