Friends of the Poor Walk
In 2019, the St. Vincent de Paul Denver Metro Council helped 22,000 individuals through the generosity of our donors to this event, which is our largest fundraiser of the year, and other donations throughout the year.
For the last 13 years the St. Vincent de Paul Society Denver Metro Council has hosted the Friends of the Poor Walk to raise funds to support their efforts to help feed, clothe, and house those who are hungry, cold, and homeless.
This annual event raises funds through corporate sponsors like Fidelis Catholic Credit Union, Citywide Banks, and Denver Catholic, as well as, through the contributions of individual donors like you.
Every year people came together as symbol unity, solidarity, and hope to walk signifying their love for neighbor and desire to help the poor and hungry.
This year, the Friends of the Poor Walk is Virtual.
Join us this year, by donating, registering, and gathering with your church communities, family, and friends to symbolically walk for the poor anytime between now and Sept. 26. Share your pictures and videos of you and family or community walking and we'll post approved submissions the bottom of this page.
Your help is greatly needed and appreciated!
This year we have an anonymous $5000 matching donation! Please help us to meet this match. Donate today.
We would also like to acknowledge our sponsors for this year’s walk:
Fidelis Catholic Credit Union
Don Kany and Karkco, LLC
The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado
St Jude Catholic Parish

The SVdP Friends of the Poor Walk is our biggest fundraising event of the year and with the funds raised, we are able to help feed, clothe, and house those who are hungry, cold, and homeless.
