Schreiner Crop Walk November 23

Schreiner University’s Campus Ministry and Kerrville Ministerial Alliance will co-sponsor a Crop Hunger Walk 2-4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 23. They also are asking for donations of canned goods for the Christian Assistance Ministry in Kerrville and monetary donations that will go to the local St. Vincent de Paul Society and Church World Service, all organizations that help the poor and hungry.

The Schreiner Crop Walk will take place on the university campus, with nine buildings representing locations in the world where many people are living in poverty and going hungry. There will be educational information and games at each stop. The walk will begin at the Robbins Lewis Pavilion on the Schreiner campus. Each walker or group will receive a map and a passport to hunger and poverty, and participants are encouraged to find sponsors and donate the funds they raise, although people may participate without donating.

For more information about this event, contact the Rev. Gini Norris-Lane, Schreiner campus minister, at 830-792-7284 or Find out more about the Crop Walk movement, on Church World Service Web site at For a map of the Schreiner campus, go to and click on “campus map.”
