On a daily basis, individuals come to Friends of the Poor for all types of assistance. Our ability to respond to these needs is dependent upon the generosity of our friends who make large and small monetary and material contributions. On this page we would like to recognize our friends for their shared commitment to our mission.  They exemplify what it truly means to be a friend of the poor.

Friends of the Poor extends it's utmost gratitude to the Sponsors of our St. Patrick's Dinner.  We served 650 meals and enjoyed an evening of music, laughter, and community.  We could not have done it without you!
