4th Annual Friends of the Poor Virtual/Group Walk & Raffles
The Friends of the Poor Walk began as a national program with the purpose of providing local Society of St. Vincent de Paul 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 local people living in poverty.
