The Be A Light Marketplace is a Good Samaritan Ministries program that serves registered under-resourced parents and guardians. Our desire is to partner with parents/guardians and empowers them to become part of the process of providing Christmas gifts for their families.

A pop-up store with Christmas toys, toiletries, games, etc. will be set up in December at Good Samaritan Ministries to allow guardians to shop for their teens. Guardians will not have to pay for the items they choose but we encourage them to volunteer so they can be given the dignity and worth to feel like they contributed.  To collect items for the program, click here for suggested items.

Good Samaritan additionally provides food boxes so that each family we serve may have a wonderful and satisfying holiday meal together. We also deliver fully prepared meals to the elderly, shut-ins, and the disabled.

This ministry opportunity will provide many volunteer opportunities for the community and churches for the event and prior which include

  • Set-up and Tear down
  • Decorations team
  • Welcome Team
  • Wrapping Station
