Friends of the Poor Walk - Sept. 20!!!
The Evansville District Council of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul will hold its 7th Annual Friends of the Poor Walk on Saturday September 20, 2014! The event begins at 9am and is held at the Evansville State Hospital Grounds (use Lincoln Avenue entrance).
Participation in the Walk is free, but donations are encouraged. Each Walker will receive a SVdP Shopping Bag and SVdP rain poncho (this a rain or shine event!). You can go to our Friends of the Poor Walk page to learn more about sponsorship, registration, etc.
100% of the event proceeds are used to help those in need in our four-county service area!
- SVdP operates a food pantry that serves approximately 1,100 Evansville area families per month.
- SVdP operates a thrift store that provides clothing bedding and essential household goods to those in need.
- SVdP provides assistance with utility shut off, evictions and temporary medical prescriptions through personal visits by members (volunteers) operating out of over twenty parish-based conferences in the Southwestern Indiana region.
If you or your business would like to “Sponsor” the walk, please visit our Sponsorship page or call 812.867.6974.
