GCU Crop Walk Efforts Help Alleviate Hunger

cropwalkteam2Georgian Court University was a prominent presence at this year’s Annual Crop Walk, which took place October 20 in Toms River, NJ.

“With some 223 GCU students, faculty and staff, all wearing bright orange t-shirts, GCU was pretty hard to miss,” said Jeff Schaffer, GCU’s Director of Campus Ministry, adding that the participants raised nearly $5,000 to fight hunger. “We are very proud of our academic community’s commitment to service and compassion. At Crop Walk 2013, mercy wore the color orange!” he said.

This year’s t-shirts were designed by Amy Berry, a GCU senior studying exercise science and psychology, who added a memorable message to the back of the shirts: “We walk because they need to live!”

"These numbers represent a tremendous effort to ease hunger both globally and locally. Our students have taken valuable time from their busy schedules to make a positive difference in the world.
