Good Samaritan Ministries is collecting school supplies for its Back to School program in the summer.

Donate School Supplies to Good Samaritan Ministries

Good Samaritan Ministries needs school supplies to support our Back to School summer program. The Back to School Program provides food to families during the summer break months and also provides a backpack filled with school supplies for each child attending school in August.

We are collecting school supplies through August 2024
