Easter Food Drive

Easter Eggs
We are already preparing for our annual Easter Dinner food drive. This program provides Samaritan House clients with the means to make Easter Dinner, an Easter egg dye kit, a dozen fresh eggs and a $15 gift certificate to purchase an Easter ham. Last year we distributed 320 dinner baskets. We expect the number to increase this year. The following items are needed for this program:

Jell-O                                       Cake Mix
Canned Fruit                           
Canned Corn                           
Canned Green Beans             
Easter egg coloring kit
$15 gift certificates or cash donations for Easter hams

Share the joy of Easter with your neighbors by donating to our annual Easter Food Basket Drive! Please bring your donations to Samaritan House by April 11th during pantry business hours on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday.

Joyful Heart Cookbook

Calling all cooks! Samaritan House wants your recipes for Joyful Heart, a cookbook commemorating our 20 years of community involvement, volunteerism and of course, food! It will be a very unique cookbook and will be available in time for the 2014 Holiday season, and throughout 2015. You'll not see another cookbook like it!

To have your recipe(s) included, please send $7 to Samaritan House for each recipe and you will receive the official Recipe Submission Kit. The kit includes supplies and directions for submitting recipes that are uniquely from your heart and in your own handwriting.

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. We are also looking for cover art for Joyful Heart. Please feel free to submit cover art ideas to Samaritan House.
