The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run is a national program that provides funding for local Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP)
Conferences and Councils. Funds raised from these events remain local, allowing local SVdP Conferences/Councils to provide emergency assistance
to those in need, regardless of race, origin, religion, or gender. Last year, over 4,500 SVdP Conferences and Councils provided 11.5 million service
hours to help almost 15 million people in the United States.
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.
