Imagine walking 47 miles to get some help – they did and we helped!

Two weeks ago, a homeless couple in their late 40s walked from Haines City, FL to our St. Vincent de Paul offices in Apopka, FL … 47 miles. The husband had a job lead and they needed some help. We replaced worn-through shoes, provided clothing and food and put the couple up in a motel. Even though the job lead fell through, the man landed another job driving a truck.

Every day, St. Vincent de Paul helps people like this couple. It’s time for our 6th Annual Friends of the Poor Walk and the one time each year I reach out to family and friends and ask for pledges.

Would you please consider making a donation of any kind at:

or please mail a check to me at P.O. Box 951402 Lake Mary, FL 32795.

All donations are tax deductible and will help provide food for our Bags of Care Program to support homeless students or to keep the lights on and prevent people from being evicted.

Thanks much for your generosity and support!
