WARREN — Trumbull County St. Vincent de Paul Society will host its first Friends of the Poor Walk starting at 11 a.m. Saturday at Perkins Park in Warren.
A $15 registration fee for the event will include a T-shirt, a “swag bag” filled with coupons and gifts from local businesses, lunch and participation in the one-mile walk.
The Friends of the Poor walk is a national event to raise awareness about rapidly rising food and income insecurity.
Participants can register at the start of the event Saturday. Registration for students is $10.
St. Vincent de Paul Society is an association of Catholic lay women and women volunteers devoted to serving the underprivileged in the community.
The organization helps those in need by providing hundreds of daily home-cooked meals, incarceration reintegration services, clothing, furniture, and home goods voucher programs, and its Sleep Soundly program, which distributes beds.
