Having no one to turn to in a moment of need is a trying experience for anyone, but especially for the poor. Are you willing to be a friend of the poor?
For nearly two centuries, the poor and needy of the world have found a friend in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. This year, on Sunday, September 28th, the Society will hold its first annual nationwide Friends of the Poor Walk. We invite you to participate and become Friends of the Poor¬Æ, too. Pledges made on behalf of registered walkers in a given community will benefit those most in need in that same community.
The walk this year will be held at Bellarmine Preparatory School; 2300 S Washington; Tacoma from 1-4pm.
To register as a walker, to pledge support for a walker, or for more information, go to www.svdpfriendsofthepoorwalk.org. To volunteer, contact:.
