CROP Walk celebrates 50 years!

Oak Hill Faculty, Families, and Alumni brave the rain for the 5 mile walk.

On Sunday, October 20th, students from Oak Hill Academy helped to end hunger. About 25 parents, teachers, and students took a rainy 5 mile walk through Little Silver, Fair Haven, and Red Bank to simulate the distance some people must travel on foot for food and water each day. Eighth Grade Student Council members informed the entire Oak Hill Academy student body about the Crop Walk through a special assembly presented earlier in the week.  They also welcomed Mrs. Janie Schildge, Red Bank CROP Walk coordinator since 1985; Maurice Bloem, Executive VP of Church World Service who stopped by Oak Hill during his 100 mile week long walk to raise awareness of issues around hunger and poverty, and Mr. Bill Gleason (OHA ’02) to speak to our school who has been participating in the Red Bank Area Walk for over 25 years! They focused on why we donate to help others and the importance of donating food to those in need. Students were encouraged to donate peanut butter, rice, and beans for the local food pantries. We collected 1,336 pounds of food through this process. We are so thankful to the generosity and commitment of our families for making this such a success!
