A Good Friends of the Poor Walk

Thank you to all who participated in our virtual Friends of the Poor Walk on October 17th,  including all the walkers and all the donators!  This was a difficult year to conduct this fundraiser, but we were able to raise almost $3,000 in spite of the fact that our Friends of the Poor Walk was “right on the heels” of Give More 24!  So thank you to all who supported us!

Thank you for a successful Give More 24!

On September 24th, our Conference participated in Give More 24! for the first time ever.  We were one of over 240 non-profits to participate in this annual day of giving sponsored by the Community Foundation of Southwest Washington.  We raised 94% of our ambitious goal of $15,000!  Thanks to everyone who generously contributed to that first-time effort – whether it was one of our amazing match donors or on the day of giving itself.  We sincerely extend our deep thanks and appreciation for your generous support of our mission and our Give More 24! fundraiser. 

Friends of the Poor Walk October 17th 2020

Join our St. Vincent de Paul on October 17th, 2020 for a virtual walk to help those in need!

Due to the pandemic, there will be no central gathering, nor will Vancouver Conference be joining us. Instead, each walker (or household of walkers) will walk a route of their choosing on October 17th. Watch for us throughout Vancouver in our FOP Walk T-shirts!

2020 St. John the Evangelist Yard Sale Cancelled

Sadly, the annual yard sale, organized by Adult Activities in support of St. Vincent de Paul, will not take place this summer.  If you have been saving items to donate to the yard sale, please feel free to donate them to any of the local agencies that accept second-hand items.  Please note that St. Vincent de Paul of Vancouver, on Stapleton Avenue, is not able to accept donations of clothing or household goods at this time.

We thank the Adult Activities group for their faithful hard work every year on this fundraiser!  We are so grateful for your support.

Thank you to the Community Foundation of SW Washington!!

We are so very grateful and appreciative to the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington for enabling the St. John the Evangelist Conference to help families who are struggling to pay their rent due to the COVID-19 crisis.  Because of this grant, we are able to help more families stay stably housed at this critical time.
