The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Long Island will host its 6th Annual Friends of the Poor Walk on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Bethpage State Park.
Registration begins at 9AM and the Walk will commence at 11AM.
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.
