The Morgan County CROP Walk is releasing donation totals from their 2015 event.

According to local treasurer Tim Chipman, walkers raised $6,123.

The Church World Service will use the funds for international relief and development, as well as local hunger-fighting.

Twenty-five percent of the total will be divided between the Jacksonville Area Food Center and food pantries in Murrayville and Franklin.

Area churches and civic organizations participated in the Crop Walk.
