The New Paltz Crop Walk was started by retired Pastor Paul Walley in 1973, while he served as the campus pastor of the Student Christian Center. Originally named the "Walk A Thon For Hunger Relief", the "Walk" was first known as "United Nations World Food Program" and was held on the field track at the SUNY New Paltz. In that first year, 50 college students walked and raised $2,000.00.
Our congregation is proud to be a longtime supporter of this wonderful event. For more information about the New Paltz Crop Walk you can contact our congregation, or the New Paltz Crop Walk directly at:

On a beautiful New Paltz autumn day, 132 Walkers participated in the 2010 New Paltz CROP Walk. Thus far $14,908.00 has been raised through online donations, sponsored walkers and a silent auction. Late donations are anticipated to come in.
