Good Samaritan Ministries is continuing its Hope for the Holidays tradition of providing food and gifts to our community neighbors during the holiday season. We will serve over 500 families by providing food for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and providing gifts for children in the Be a Light Marketplace.
