How Do I Become a Recruiter?

If at all possible, try to attend one of the 2017 Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk Kick-Off events.

NEW THIS YEAR:  A Team Captains Rally will be held on Tuesday, August 29 from 6:00pm-7:30pm (RSVP by 8/24/17) and a Team Captain Drop-In event on Wednesday, August 30 from 12:00pm-2:00pm.  All Kick-Off events will take place at West Market St. UMC, 302 W. Market St., Greensboro.  If you are a new team captain and interested in more formalized training, we will offer one-on-one coaching where we will be reviewing recruiter responsibilities, procedures, and best practices for recruiting a team and raising funds and we will be registering teams online. Also, recruiters will receive their recruiter packets at this meeting (recruiter packets include walk papers, walker envelopes, deposit slips, t-shirt order information, CROP posters, CROP bulletin inserts, Walk information brochures, as well as other CROP resources).

If you are unable to attend either CROP Kick-Off event, you may register your team online by clicking HERE. Then, contact the CROP office at 336.553.2641 to arrange to pick up your recruiter packet and to go over a brief orientation.  

CROP Office Hours are:  Mondays – Thursdays: 9:00am-5:00pm, Fridays: 9am-4pm

Lastly, have FUN! Remember, we are all in this to raise money to help feed those who are less fortunate.

Our recruiters make our walk the great success that it is and we could not do it without you. Thank you so much for you interest in helping to end hunger!

 

How Do I Deposit Donations?

DO NOT BRING ANY CROP WALK DONATIONS TO THE WALK!

  • Encourage your walkers to turn in their donations to you ASAP – it is best if they are turned in BEFORE the Walk. Deposit all funds collected into the BB&T CROP Walk account. Make sure to include your organization’s name on the deposit slip – if you do not do this, we do not know who made the deposit. Deposit slips are included in your Recruiter’s Packet. More deposit slips can be picked up at the CROP Walk office at Greensboro Urban Ministry, 305 W. Gate City Blvd. The deadline to have all CROP funds deposited is December 31, 2017.
  • After the Walk: Collect all sponsor records from your walkers (used and unused). Turn in these and any other CROP Walk materials not used (ie posters, pamphlets, etc.) to the CROP Walk Office.
  • Thank everyone from your organization who supported the CROP Walk and report how much was raised.
  • Collect donations from walkers as soon as possible – even before the Walk!
  • All checks should be payable to CROP Walk. Endorse all checks by writing “CROP” or “For Deposit Only” on the back.
  • If you receive a check made payable to your congregation or organization, endorse it for them, then write underneath: “For Deposit Only – Greensboro CROP Walk.”
  • The deposit slip has two parts. To fill out, press firmly on a hard surface using a ballpoint pen. Keep the duplicate copy for your records.
  • Print the name of your congregation, organization, or group on the deposit slip. This will assure proper credit to your group.
  • List all checks separately for deposit. You may use an adding machine (attach tape) or list checks on a separate sheet of paper.
  • For any team member that donates $250 or more, the team captain needs to notify the CROP Walk Office and supply the donor’s information for providing a tax receipt.

Additional deposit slips are available at the CROP Walk Office, Greensboro Urban Ministry.

The CROP bank account name:  (CWS Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk)

Deadline for 2017 CROP Walk Deposits is December 31, 2017

2017 Walk Route Map

This year’s route is a little different — the start and end will be at the corner of Bellemeade and Eugene. Walkers, however, will go past the park on Bellemeade and turn right on Edgeworth, instead of walking up to Elm.
