ATTENTION Churches, businesses, schools, civic organizations and other groups it is time for the #TackleHunger community-wide food drive. Each group are assigned a specific item to collect in the month of October in order to help us fill 800 boxes of items that would be used to prepare a traditional Christmas dinner. These items are collected in October, packed by volunteer groups in November and distributed through our Food Pantry in December to all pantry clients. A complete list of items can be found here or you can call 325-643-2273.
If your business, Sunday school class or school group want to participate but you don't have the space to collect actual items, you can make a monetary donation and Good Samaritan Ministries will purchase these items for you and give credit to your organization for the number purchased. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
Another option is to make a donation of money to buy the hen, eggs, flour and sugar that also go in the boxes. Based on price increases, we estimate that the cost of all of the items in a box will run at least $50 this year.
Call 325-643-2273 for more information on how you can help with this important ministry to provide more than 800 families a Christmas meal this year.
