Look How CROP Reaches Out to Make a Difference
Whether helping to address hunger and homelessness, improve the environment, or bring enriching activities to children, youth, and seniors, CAMP Rehoboth Outreach Program (CROP) continues the work of CAMP Rehoboth by uniting individuals and groups to create a better community. CROP reaches beyond Rehoboth to lend a hand. In April, CROP traveled to Ellendale and Milton to landscape two Habitat for Humanity properties for their new owners.
In June, we will stay closer to home as we help to protect and conserve the diverse resources in our beautiful Cape Henlopen State Park and support VegRehoboth in promoting healthy, sustainable, compassionate living. Read on to see how you can help.
National Trails Day, Saturday June 2, 9 to 11:30 a.m. For the eighth consecutive year, CROP will participate with other volunteers to clean up trails and beaches in Cape Henlopen State Park.Contact us today if you can help! Email Debbie Woods
VegFest, Saturday June 9, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. CROP will help at VegFest, a FREE fun-filled festival held at Epworth UMC in Rehoboth Beach. Afternoon volunteers are needed to staff tables, pass out food samples, and more! Email Sue Goudy
In July, we will head north to Milford and the Food Bank of Delaware. We will help to make sure nutritious foods are available to children in summer programs throughout the state, as well as to Delawareans dealing with food insecurity.
