Tonita Reifsteck holds up the shirt that will go to whoever collects the most money for this year's CROP Walk. She is flanked by Valerie Coombs (left) and Verdeen Ingram.

CROP Walk donations are welcome through Nov. 1. This deadline is so Church World Service can process the gifts by Thanksgiving or at least by the end of the year.  Make checks payable to CWS/CROP and mail to:
Nancy Gehlbach, CROP Treasurer, 1302 1200th St., Lincoln, IL 62656.
