NASHUA - The 32nd annual crop hunger walk brought together hundreds of people and raised thousands of dollars for local and international organizations. Kids learned how to help others.
"People can like buy food and they can get like a home and clothes," said Joseph Towle.
Joseph Towle and his big brother Jacob have been taking part in the Nashua Crop walk for Hunger for the past several years. The two understand their actions are helping others in need and it's an event that both boys enjoy, It's something Joseph loves to be a part of.
"He was asked to do a drawing of something he liked and he decided to do the crop walk...he said that was one of the favorite things he looked forward to doing every year," said David Towel, the boy's dad.
The walk is sponsored by the Nashua area interfaith council. The money raised will help with local food pantries in the area.
"20 percent of what we raise goes to the salvation army, the Nashua Soup kitchen, the Corpus Christie food pantry and the St. John Newman food pantry," said Rebecca Green, Coordinator for Nashua walk.
The rest of the money will go to the organization Church World Services to help with international hunger and poverty relief. Green says the money will also help those in Haiti who are still suffering from the devastating category four hurricane.
"They don't just feed people they teach them how to grow crops and how to irrigate and how to dig wells and they do a lot of disaster relief," said Green.
Three-hundred people joined the Towles and helped to raise more than $28,000. For the two brothers, it's a small walk that helps many in a big way.
"I just feel happy cause like we're actually helping people," said Jacob Towle.
"It makes me feel good because there's a lot of poor people out there, people who don't have homes, they can't eat, they're starving," said Joseph Towle.
