GET INVOLVED

AN EXCELLENT WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.

We know how much people love giving their time to Good Samaritan Ministries, and we appreciate your help! We continue to grow and evolve as our needs change and we begin offering more opportunities for our neighbors to help. Learn more below about ways to volunteer at Good Samaritan Ministries.

Holiday Sign-Ups

This program provides a Thanksgiving and Christmas food box to families so that they will not have to worry about what they will eat on Thanksgiving or Christmas but instead focus on spending time gathered around the table as a family. This would involve helping people correctly enter their information into the computer. We often have elderly that are not familiar with computer and sometimes people who are unable to read. We desire to serve them without limits. We would ask volunteers to engage with them in conversation while helping them complete the needed information.

Freezin' For A Reason

Freezin’ For A Reason is so much more than an icy dip in the water. Participants ‒ or “plungers” ‒ raise funds to get wild and plunge into an icy pool. All proceeds benefit the Good Samaritan Ministries.

Resurrection Baskets

This program provides Easter Resurrection Baskets to children from low-income and at-risk households, such as those who have a parent that is incarcerated and those participating in area after school programs. Each basket is filled with candy, fun items such as toys and bubbles, Christian coloring books and reading material, and a children’s bible to further a child’s spiritual growth.
