STUDENTS WALK FOR POORPublished 12:18am Tuesday, October 1, 2013
Scores of Andalusia Middle School students turned out Saturday at the St. Vincent DePaul Society of Christ the King Catholic Church’s fifth annual Friends of the Poor Walk. The local event, which coincides with a national event, is designed to raise awareness that people in the local community have need, and to raise funds to meet those needs. This year, members of the community, the school’s sports teams and civic clubs, raised approximately $3,000 for the St. Vincent DePaul Society. In addition, the 87 walkers donated 552 pounds of food.
