Walk Description: On Monday, November 12, 2018, we will be hosting the ninth annual Friends of the Poor Walk. This is a 5K fundraising walk to benefit the Saint Vincent de Paul Society of Westford. The society’s mission is toprovide person to person services to needy and suffering families within our local community, who are experiencing temporary difficulty due to illness, unemployment, personal tragedy or other unexpected challenges. Some examples of services offered include: emergency financial assistance, rent/mortgage assistance, meals, transportation, home repair, disaster relief and visitation services. Since its formation over nine years ago, the Saint Vincent DePaul Society has provided more than $600,000 in financial assistance to those in need. Anyone in the Westford community is eligible for assistance.
The Friends of the Poor® Walk/Run is a national event coordinated by the Development Team at the National
Council of the United States Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
