Helping Our Neighbors in Need
Sharing Tree Program
The Sharing Tree volunteers are gearing up for this year's Christmas program. You can only imagine the immenseness of the project. If you are interested in helping, please call Samaritan House at 586-336-9956. Sharing Tree tags will be available in November.
What's Cookin' at Samaritan House?
The Joyful Heart cookbook, celebrating 20 years of community involvement, volunteerism and of course, food - that's what! This unique cookbook, based on a 1939 Out of Vermont Kitchens cookbook, will showcase the individuality of each chef by asking that each recipe be submitted in their own handwriting and include their sketches and/or comments.
WE NEED YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES! Recipes, like traditions are best when handed down. Joyful Heart will be sure to keep family favorites right at your fingertips for generations to come. We're looking for recipes in eight categories: Appetizers, Soups & Salads, Meats, Poultry, Seafood, Vegetables/Sides, Breads/Bakery and Desserts.
For a $7 entry fee, cooks receive the official Joyful Heart Recipe Submission Kit with detailed instructions, special-sized paper and a $5 off coupon to use for ordering a cookbook when completed later in the year. Recipe kits are available at Samaritan House. Call 586-336-9956 or stop in during pantry hours. Please turn in your recipes as soon as possible.
Joyful Heart isn't limited to recipes. We are looking for original artwork to complement the recipes. Also, local businesses will have a chance to sponsor this one-of-a-kind cookbook and have their ad placed on the inside front or back cover, the outside back cover, or on one of the section dividers.
Thanksgiving Pantry Needs
Please have your Thanksgiving donations in by November 14th so our volunteers have enough time to pack dinner boxes. Last year we distributed Thanksgiving dinner to 319 households.

No, Samaritan House is not starting up a softball squad...yet. But we are looking for T.E.A.M.'s when it comes to auction/raffle items: Treats, Entertainment, Activities, Memories is the theme for the 2013-2014 auction/raffle collection. We'll gladly accept any items that would help augment our auctions/raffles. We're also always looking for some BIG TICKET items - Trips, Events, Action and Magical! If you are willing to sponsor a BIG TICKET and/or T.E.A.M. item, or have something you think will be well received, please contact Gretchen at 586-336-9956 or SHevents@att.net.
