How Can I Help?

Volunteer help and donations are always needed to allow us to carry out our mission to serve those in need in our service area.  Below are some ways to get involved.  Please feel free to contact Samaritan House to learn about other opportunities to help in the pantry, with special programs, or with fundraising events.  Thank you for your assistance!

Help Wanted
Samaritan House is looking for volunteers who will work a 4 hour per week shift in the pantry. This will be a consistent, weekly position and may require some physical work. We are also looking for volunteers who will be available on a substitute basis. If you are interested, please call Samaritan House at 586-336-9956 or send an
email to

Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer. ~ Author Unknown

Here's How It Works
  1. Samaritan House has a specific need for an item or items of clothing.
  2. The Samaritan House staff sends an email request for the needed item(s) to the members of the eCare Network.
  3. You check your email and discover the need.
  4. If you have the item(s), you drop off the donation at Samaritan House during normal pantry business hours and receive a receipt.
  5. Client needs are filled, and God smiles!
  To join the eCare Network, simply download the form found on our Resources page, print it and fill it out.
You can then drop it in the mail, scan it & email it,
fax it, or drop it off at Samaritan House!
