Friends of the Poor Walk Fundraiser

September 28, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Saturday, September 27, St. Vincent de Paul will host an annual Friends of the Poor Walk fundraiser to benefit its Family Resource Center in Pittsburg, CA. This year, we have great participation from area youth supporting programs for the poor in our community!

Students from across the local area are getting together to help raise funds. Students from San Ramon Christian Academy are sending 20 sponsored students and are hosting bake sales to raise funds. Volunteers from Carondelet have organized teams of walkers and volunteers for the event.

Last year’s event included 65 walkers, and we expect more this year thanks to the enthusiasm of these outstanding young people. We welcome your coverage or participation in our event!  It’s a great chance to meet young people who are enthusiastic about helping people in our local area. 100 percent of funds raised stay in Contra Costa County to help people where we live.
