Friends of the poor walk

Around town

By Marianne Stanley

The 3rd annual “Friends of the Poor Walk” will be held Saturday, September 25 at 10 a.m. at the Job Center, 945 S. Edwin C. Moses Blvd. This walk is open to the public and serves a twofold purpose: to raise funds and to raise awareness of Dayton’s poor.  Besides the 3.7K walk, Saturday’s events include the first annual “Art Walk”, a bake sale and a car wash.  Local artists were invited to select one item from the St. Vincent de Paul “Deconstruction Depot” to exhibit at this event.  The Deconstruction Depot sells lumber, doors, windows, mantels and other décor to the public from turn of the century homes. All the money collected on Saturday will go directly to support St. Vincent de Paul’s dedicated work in providing emergency shelters, a food pantry, a community store, transitional housing and other services to the Miami Valley’s needy residents and families. There is still time to register for the walk by contacting Terry Williamson at (937) 222-7349 x 419 or visiting online at
