More than 325 people turned out Saturday, March 29 for the 16th Annual St. Vincent DePaul Society’s March Against Hunger. Organizers collected more than $4,600 in donations that day, qualifying the group for a matching grant of $2,500 from the Mary Stuart Rodgers Foundation.

The total donations collected this year totals more than $8,400 —not including the grant. 

Participants of all ages and from many area churches marched on a 4-mile trek from Bonaventure Hall on M Street to downtown Patterson, then to T.W. Patterson Sports Park on Ward Avenue before circling back to the hall.

St. Vincent De Paul Society is an international nonprofit charity that helps people in need, regardless of race or religion. With the help of local individuals, service clubs and organizations, the local society runs a variety of programs that help folks of all ages.
