Fight Hunger Challenge 2015
Extended to May 30th!
We need your help to reach our goal of matching what was raised
last year for the Feinstein Challenge for this year
Fight Hunger Challenge 2015.
United Samaritans Foundation is extending its challenge to the
end of May 2015 to the community to help fight hunger by
matching or increasing your last year’s donation during the
month of March and April 2015 to “FIGHT HUNGER”.
All food and dollar contributions you provide help those in need within our community. Please
continue to give so that we may continue to serve. Help to “FIGHT HUNGER” in our community.
In 2015 we expect to serve over 385,000 lunches. We
need your help to meet the rising cost of providing to
those in need.
Please, when making your donations to indicate that is
for the Fight Hunger Challenge. If you would like to conduct
a canned food drive for the “FIGHT HUNGER
CHALLENGE” at your school or place of business,
please contact Maris or Esther at 209-668-4853 for
Thank you for your help!
Annual Post Office Food Drive
On Saturday, May 9, 2015 the National Association of Letter Carriers will be
collecting your donations of non-perishable food. This is the 21st year that the
United Samaritans Foundation has been the recipient of this community wide
canned food drive. These donations are utilized in the provision of emergency
food boxes that are distributed each month. Many people in our agency have had
the privilege of working along with the letter carriers on this project. Watch
your mailbox for notification from the post office and please remember to put
your non-perishable donations near your mailbox. This is one of the ways our
community helps us to provide food for our Emergency Food Box Program.
Thanks for your Support!!
The Easter Bunny Visits United Samaritans Foundation
On Wednesday, April 15th, a large group
of Stanislaus State University college students
were on hand at United Samaritans
Foundation to lend a hand in coloring
Easter Eggs and
treats. They colored over
1,300 eggs. The colored eggs
were bagged with Easter
treats and were
distributed from the mobile lunch trucks
on Good Friday. Thank you to all the volunteers
who helped color the eggs and
bag treats and to those of you who donated
candy. We had a
lot of happy smiles from clients
when they got their
lunch that day.
God Bless you
