Samaritan Center: Volunteers needed

The Samaritan Center is in need of groups and individuals on Saturday night to help bring donations into the warehouse. We have an opening this weekend 6-27-20 but are needing a group to adopt the 2nd or 5th Saturdays of each month (the 5th would be about 4 Saturdays a year). It is a great way to give back to the community, earn service hours, and meet new people.

Social distancing is possible and we can provide gloves, volunteer will have to bring their own mask if desired. The only  requirements are signing in and out and to please wear sneakers.

Our donation dock is located behind Elders Ace Hardware and open on Saturdays 45 minutes after sundown. Upon arrival please check in with Curtis our Saturday night supervisor. Contact Bethany Hills at 423-238-7777 ext. 22 Monday-Thursday 8-4pm or email anytime for more information or to be placed on the schedule.

Thank you for helping us fill this position.

Resources for the Homeless

Sun screen, bug spray, and deodorant are real needs for the Homeless.  You may bring these items and put them in the basket in the foyer of the church marked "Homeless". Because of Covid 19 we are not taking clothes to them at this time so do not bring any until we start passing out clothing again. We will be helping them again July 11.


Because of your faithfulness in keeping our food pantry stocked we were able to help a family with 85 items of food recently. We are always in need of more cans of fruit. If you know of anyone that needs help, please call Shirley Smith at 423-713-6667.
