Girls' Softball Strikes Out Hunger

Baseball Player

Girls' softball hit a home run this summer, when JV and Varsity teams from Armada High School, L'Anse Cruise High School, Romeo High School and Utica High School raised $3000 on behalf of Samaritan House! Additionally they held a food drive to stock our pantry shelves.

This is the 2nd Annual Strike Out Hunger effort and the teams plan to come together again next year to support Samaritan House. We couldn't be prouder of these young ladies and their coaches. We are so thankful for their efforts to strike out hunger!

Back to School

Thank you to our supporters for their generous donations of backpacks, school supplies, jeans and Payless Shoes gift cards that were distributed to students in need on August 22, 23 and 25.

Attention Gardeners!


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!

Our sincere thanks to Meijer for sponsoring our cookbook!

Angels Corner

This month we recognize the following for a special effort flowing from a special heart. This month's Samaritan House Angels are:

- First Congregational Church
- Claudia Amboyer
- Laura Pickett
- United Methodist Church Vacation Bible School
- Our 2017 golf outing committee and volunteers

"Volunteers are not paid...not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

Thank You Volunteers!

We salute the true hearts and hands of Samaritan House - our volunteers. With only four 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.

To join our wonderful team
of volunteers or for more information, please call
