Thank you to Pastor Steve Barkey, Samaritan House Board of Directors member Sue Dudgeon and the Youth Group from Orchard Ridge Church of the Nazarene, for sharing your time and talents with Samaritan House.
After a tour of Samaritan House the Youth Group put together boxes for our Easter Program and helped prepare bags for our Adopt a Bag Program. Our Adopt a Bag Program coordinates with our sponsoring churches to provide Samaritan House with essential food items needed to fill our pantry.
We thank all of the members of our sponsoring churches who participate in this program. We could not do what we do without the support of the membership from our sponsoring churches. Thank you!

Our Volunteer of the Month,
Thank you to Paige for joining our volunteer team here at Samaritan House. Paige has been with us for a short time, but is already training to work in several different areas, including pantry, front desk and supervisor. Paige has been donating to Samaritan House for years and decided since her scheduled opened up she would like to donate her time as well, helping others. Paige has a kind heart and truly enjoys giving to others. When she's not volunteering at Samaritan House, Paige loves to work out, walk, golf and bike ride.
Paige also enjoys attending the Samaritan House fundraisers, especially when she wins a raffle basket. . We are blessed to have such amazing volunteers!!
If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by and fill out an application, or for more details call Judy at 586-336-9956.
Volunteers are not paid...not because they are worthless,
but because they are priceless." ~Unknown
