Good Samaritan Ministries rely on our community to help provide items to our neighbors. Our programs have specific donation needs and we appreciate your help to obtain these items. We will bring a donation barrel to your location and arrange to pick it up when you have completed your donation drive. We’ll help craft a donation drive to meet our needs and your goals!
