SVDP Friends of the Poor Walk

12th Annual Friends of the Poor 5K Walk/Run

October 10 – October 17, 2020

We cordially invite you to participate in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s 12th Annual Friends of the Poor 5K Walk/Run, taking place in our parish October 10-17.

Unlike past years, Vincentians and participants may walk or run in small groups in their neighborhoods, if they wish. Nonetheless, this event is our largest and longest continually-running fundraising event on Long Island that draws attention to the issue of poverty in our communities, and is especially important now as we emerge from this crisis. Now more than ever, we’re relying on funds raised to provide our volunteers with the resources they need to help our neighbors in need.

Your donation to the Friends of the Poor 5K Walk/Run could make the difference for those in temporary need in our community. If you are in a position to give financially, please help our struggling neighbors get back on their feet and on a pathway to self-sufficiency. Thank you!

Your Neighbors Need You!

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul helps approximately 150,000 Long Islanders in need each year. From the Queens-Nassau Border to the East End, we provide people struggling with the effects of poverty with the financial, material, emotional, and spiritual assistance they require to overcome poverty and become self-sufficient. We need you to continue the work we have been doing in our parish for more than 86 years.
