Sharing Tree Makes the Season Jolly!
Our annual Christmas gift program, Sharing Tree, is a very special program for our friends and neighbors. Through our 2018 Sharing Tree, community members like you gave gifts and food gift cards to more than 200 local families in need, as well as nursing and group homes.
Our Sharing Tree serves young and old, children and adults. Wishes are written on tags and placed on a tree at sponsoring churches and local businesses.
You, too, can help make the season jolly by selecting one or more tags, purchasing the wished-for items, and returning the wrapped gifts to St. John Lutheran, 246 Benjamin Street, Romeo. Gifts are being collected December 9th through December 12th.
Last year 320 volunteers served a total of 1,280 hours, but the smiles on the faces of the parents and children who received your generous gifts were worth it! You too can join the team of Sharing Tree volunteers. Simply call Judy at 586-366-9956 or send an email to email@example.com

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.
