Next Samaritan Center Visit

Categories: Events

Join us on July 12th

Our next visit to the Samaritan Center will be on Sunday, July 12.  We need a small group of about 5 people in the morning at 10:45 to assist in meal preparation and a larger group of 20-25 people at 12:45 to serve the meal and clean up.  We also need cookie bakers so we can provide dessert.  If you would like to contribute to the Center’s “Wish List”, they are in need of:  men’s socks, bike locks, baseball hats, Chapstick, and soap.

What will be very different is that the Center is now located at 215 North State Street in their beautiful new facility in St. John the Evangelist Church.  No longer are guests and volunteers squeezed into the cramped and hot basement at St Paul’s Cathedral.  The new space is larger, better ventilated, and well equipped. There is also free parking available for about 18 cars in the lot next to the building.

Those who have volunteered for one of our previous visits have found this to be an opportunity to serve a healthy meal to those who might not otherwise have access to good, hot food and to interact with people whom they might not experience in their normal daily routines.  Adults, youth, and children are encouraged to help; they only ask that a parent or guardian accompany each child.

A sign up sheet is on the table in the rear of the church.  For questions, please contact Doris at 682-5652
