Help support your local Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conference and Council by participating in the National Friends of the Poor ® Walk/Run on Saturday, September 29. To find the Friends of the Poor Walk or Run in your area, click here.
The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run began as a national program with the purpose of providing local Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) Conferences and Councils the additional funds to help support their special works projects. Today, that philosophy continues, with Conferences and Councils using the funds from this event to help people living in poverty.
In 2017, the Friends of the Poor ® Walk/Run attracted over 25,000 walkers, raised over $3.1 million.
The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run is a national event coordinated by the Development Team at the National Council of the United States Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
