|Members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Conferences from the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area volunteer and work every day to help families in need in our community. To support these efforts we are holding our 8th Annual Friends of the Poor® walk on Saturday, September 29, 2018. 100% of the donations raised from the FOP Walk go to direct support of individuals and families. This is a rain or shine event and a post-walk picnic will follow. Join us for a beautiful walk along the majestic Niagara River and The Falls while supporting the works of the Society.

There is no registration fee for walkers. All walkers will solicit pledges in support of their walk. Pledges can be submitted with the paper registration and at the registration table the day of the FOP Walk.
The FOP Walk will be held rain or shine and will be one loop around Goat Island, approximately 1.2 miles, or any longer or shorter distance if the walker chooses. A post-walk picnic will be hosted by the Divine Mercy, St. Benedict and Queen of Martyrs Conferences.
All funds raised through the FOP Walk will go directly to assist those in need in our communities, providing food, household goods and other services.
