The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run began as a national program with the purpose of providing local Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) branches the additional funds to help support their special works projects.  The funds from this event help people living in poverty.

We invite you to join us on our annual walk on September 29, 2018 @ 9am-11am


 How to Register:; Identify which walk you are registering for by searching the name of the church or “SVdP Contra Costa County”

All Friends of the Poor Walk funds remain in Contra Costa County to help the poor via SVdP Programs including food pantries, Free Dining Room, Free Medical Clinic, Dental Program for the uninsured, Job Training Program, Daytime Homeless Shelter, Thrift Stores for clothing/furniture.
