FARGO – The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is sponsoring the fourth annual Friends of the Poor “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” fundraiser Sept. 10 in Fargo’s Oak Grove Park.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10.

Proceeds from the walk will be used to purchase gift cards to give to children in need to be used to purchase shoes for the upcoming school year. Last year’s walk provided the funds to purchase 300 pairs of shoes.
