Friends of Poor Walk a success

By
From page A12 | November 11, 2012 |

We would like to express our appreciation of the many people and businesses in our community who made the second annual Yolo County Friends of the Poor Walk a rousing success. The walk, which took place Sept. 29, drew more than 100 walkers from Davis and surrounding communities and raised more than $2,000 to provide emergency financial relief for individuals and families in our county.

Sponsored by the St. James Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the 2012 Friends of the Poor Walk was part of a nationwide event bringing thousands of Vincentians together in spirit as they walked to dramatize the plight of the poor in cities and towns across the country.

St. James Vincentians would like to express our appreciation of the businesses and individuals who provided financial support for the walk. These include DeLuna Jewelers, Papé Machinery, Davis Swim and Fitness, George Barden, Matt Dolcini, Duff Devine, the Brennen family and the many friends and neighbors who donated funds in the names of individual walkers.

A number of Davis markets and restaurants provided refreshments for the walkers. These generous local businesses included the Davis Food Co-op, Safeway, Nugget Market, Panera Bread, Noah’s New York Bagels, Fluffy Donuts and Peet’s Coffee and Tea.

Thanks to The Enterprise for its coverage of the Walk, to Carrie Cineseros and her students at St. James School for their wonderful posters, and to Gloria Bonekat for even more terrific posters. We would like to thank a hard-working committee of St. James Vincentians who made all this possible; thanks, also, to Father Peter Bosque, pastor of St. James Catholic Parish, Father Innocent Subiza and Deacon Sam Colenzo for their support of this important community event.

Libby and David Burmester
Davis
