HOLIDAY GIVING

The holidays are a wonderful time for families to come together and celebrate! We hope you will consider supporting local families in the ways listed below, so that they too can enjoy a delicious turkey dinner or the joy on a child’s face Christmas morning.

Adopt-a-Family for Thanksgiving

If you or anyone you know would like to contribute food or gift cards for Thanksgiving, please consider blessing one of the clients within the Good Samaritan Network. We have many families who do not have the means to enjoy a turkey dinner with loved ones. We can help connect generous donors with thankful recipients.

Collect Gifts for Christmas

The gifts you donate will go to local families who are working toward stability through our programs and our local partners who are ministering to needy communities.  If you want to get your church involved, we are happy to provide customized flyers and bulletin inserts.

Support the Good Samaritan Network

GSN provides direct monetary assistance during the holidays and throughout the year to families struggling with homelessness, transportation, utilities, etc. If you are a church or you want to host an event, we can provide posters, bulletin inserts and even speakers for the day of your collection.

Plan a Party

Join a volunteer team to help us plan our Annual Holiday Gathering on December 9th. This event helps us to connect with clients in the spirit of Christmas. We will notify interested people of upcoming planning meetings and add you to our list of organizers to make this a special event.

Make a New Year’s Resolution

Want to help in 2016? We will be hosting informational sessions throughout the year to present opportunities to partner with us. Please let us know if you’d like to come, or if we can come to your church or group!
