Participate in Back-to-School Denim!
Blue Jeans

Kids need jeans for the new school year and with your help, we will provide them.

It's easy! Contact us and ask for a tag or two. Then shop for back-to-school jeans. Jeans purchased should be new, and should be blue denim without rips or tears. Return jeans to Samaritan House no later than August 12th. Each pair of jeans will then be given to students along with a backpack filled with supplies from our regular back-to-school program.

Our Back-to-School Program serves low-income families with school age children entering preschool through 12th grade. In addition to providing school supplies, this year we have the goal of supplying new jeans to about 240 students. With your help, we can do it!

For more information about Back-to-School Denim, call Samaritan House at 586-336-9956.

Thank You Volunteers!

We salute the true hearts and hands of Samaritan House - our volunteers. With only three part-time employees, the incredible work accomplished here for our brothers and sisters is done because of the kindness and love from 90 plus volunteers that give of their time every month.

From putting out loaves of bread and meeting with clients to stocking the shelves, sweeping the floors and fixing the doors, our volunteers are the BEST! Bless you.
