WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Bob Stambaugh spent last week soliciting businesses for donations and handing out 137 letters telling people about the CROP Hunger Walk.
He explained how money raised would go to feed the hungry locally, nationally and globally. He talked about projects to dig wells and plant gardens so people in Third World countries can find self-sufficiency.
"It's also used in emergencies like (Hurricane) Katrina," Stambaugh said.
Stambaugh, 83, participated in his 28th CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday. He joined about 100 other people walking from the Waynesboro Area YMCA to Waynesboro Area Senior High School, where they circled the track to fight hunger.
The event raised more than $10,000 in 2007, according to Janet Brockmann, who organized the event through the Waynesboro Area Fellowship of Churches.
