Summer Book Drive

Stack of Books

Summer is time for kids to have fun, but it is also when children are at risk of falling behind in literacy. We at Samaritan House collect books to give to the children of our clients. The hope is to provide kids of all ages with interesting and fun reading material that will keep them reading all summer long.

If you would like to get involved with our summer book drive, please bring your donations of new or gently used books to Samaritan House during business hours. We are looking for books for children of all ages, from story time books for young children to novels for middle school and high school students.


Back to School

It's summertime and that means it's time for our Back-to-School program! Students entering preschool through 12th grade will receive an age and gender appropriate backpack filled with grade level school supplies and a $20 Payless Shoes gift card.

We will again offer jeans in addition to the backpack program. Our jeans program works like our Christmas Sharing Tree program. Tags are available at our sponsoring churches. Take however many tags you would like. Then buy new jeans according to the size and gender listed on each tag.

Items needed for Back-to-School:

 New Backpacks  Sharpie Markers
 Spiral Notebooks  Washable Markers
 Pocket Folders  Regular Markers
 Composition Books  Highlighters
 Glue Sticks  Colored Pencils
 White School Glue  Pens (blue, black, red)
 Watercolor Paints  Pencil Boxes
 Safety Scissors  Block Erasers
 Regular Scissors  $20 Payless Gift Cards

Cash donations are always helpful too!

All Back-to-School and jeans donations need to be dropped off at Samaritan House no later than August 4th. This will give our volunteers enough time to pack backpacks and purchase any additional items that are needed.

Back-to-School distribution will be August 22, 23 and 25 during business hours.


Attention Gardeners!

Vegetables

Fresh produce is part of any healthy diet, so we love to have it available to offer to our clients! This summer, as your garden begins paying off and you have no idea what to do with your abundant crops, please think of Samaritan House. Please drop off produce early during our business hours, which begin at 10:00 am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Thank you!


Joyful Heart Cookbook Makes a Wonderful Gift!

Joyful Heart Cookbook

The Joyful Heart cookbook, celebrating 20 years of community involvement, volunteerism, and of course food, is available at Samaritan House or online! This unique cookbook, based on a 1939 Out of Vermont Kitchens cookbook, showcases the individuality of each chef by asking that each recipe be submitted in their own handwriting and include their sketches and/or comments.

Call or email Samaritan House to get your copy, or buy online!
(586-336-9956 or samaritanhouse@sbcglobal.net)


Our sincere thanks to Meijer for sponsoring our cookbook!

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.
