As school begins and the leaves begin to turn golden and red, we here at Good Samaritan must turn our attention toward the holidays. Every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Good Samaritan provides families with a holiday meal, giving them a food box filled with yummy and familiar holiday foods: turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, rolls, and more! For the elderly and those unable to cook, we provide a hot prepared meal, so no one misses out on a nice holiday meal. In addition to the food boxes we provide, for the Christmas holiday we also provide gifts for the children and the elderly.
And as we gear up for our holiday programs, we must also begin fundraising. Every year, we try to increase our ability to help more of those in need and over the past few years we've seen two groups that often go forgotten or unnoticed: the elderly and veterans. Our goal for this year, in light of the trends we've seen, is to raise $40,000 which will help provide 1000 holiday food boxes to elderly and veterans in need.
Please help us combat hunger and spread holiday cheer to our elders and those who bravely fought for our country!
