Young and old came out to make the 2013 Walk for the Poor a success. Officials and members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul would like to thank everyone who participated and contributed Saturday, Sept. 28 to benefit the less fortunate in area neighborhoods.
The citizens of the Rim Country communities were very giving and caring with their gifts for this event and throughout the year. “We especially want to thank the Payson Roundup, KMOG, Carl Anthony at PAR-A-DICE Entertainment and Diane Enos at Post Net, for their time and efforts in making our annual event a continued success,” said organizers.
The funds raised will give many families in the community, who are struggling, a chance to recover from the ongoing recession in today’s economy. One hundred percent of all donations support the work to aid these families.
Inspired by Gospel values, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul members are dedicated to serve by offering person-to-person assistance to those who are needy and suffering. In addition, the society provides others with the opportunity to serve.
