On a daily basis, individuals come to Friends of the Poor looking for and finding all types of assistance. This includes, but it not limited to food, clothing, household furnishings and financial assistance for rent, utilities and transportation. 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" and encourage anyone who sees this page to support them as they have supported us.

Friends of the Poor Extends it's utmost gratitude to the Sponsors of our St. Patrick's Day Dinner. We could not have done it without you!
