Due to disaster relief, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has decided to cancel the Friends of the Poor Walk to focus on serving those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
This walk relies heavily upon the participation of our 60 Conferences and volunteers who are now actively involved and vital to the success of our relief efforts. This has been a devastating disaster and our current priority is rebuilding our city of Houston. With your support, the Society will continue to assist those in need in our community, just as we’ve been doing since 1871.
Together, we will strengthen our friends in need and help them find hope.
— Two Saints teaming up to walk for a cause! Please join together with your friends and family to walk in solidarity and bring awareness to those living with the burdens of poverty in our community.

— The walk began in 2008 to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul — one of the world’s oldest and most effective charitable organizations. Money raised is applied to a wide range of assistance to those living in poverty in the Galveston-Houston communities. The 2016 Walk was held at more than 232 locations around the country, attracted more than 28,000 participants, and raised more than $3.1 million.
