MARCH 1ST - APRIL 30TH!!
The time has come! Your
donation will have a greater impact during March and April, since the
Feinstein Foundation is dividing $1 million among non-profit organizations around the country who
are helping fight hunger. All monetary contributions and food donations received by United Samaritans
Foundation between March 1, and April 30, 2014 will help us qualify for a portion of these
funds. The funding we have received each year has been extremely helpful to our program. With
your generous donations, we have the ability to achieve even more.
PLEASE PLAN YOUR FOOD DRIVES
IN MARCH AND APRIL! EVERY FOOD ITEM WE RECEIVE DURING THIS TIME COUNTS AS
$1.00 TOWARDS THE
"Feinstein Challenge" on your checks.
Spring Cleaning Time
United Samaritans Foundation NEEDS YOUR HELP. The shelves in our clothes
closet are starting to look a little bare. Spring is just around the corner what a great
time to clean out closets. We are in need of gently used clothing, shoes and small
household items, especially men’s jeans. All donations that we receive will help
low income families and individuals. The smiles we see when they come into our
Clothes Closet and find what they need is all the payment we need to know what
we are doing is such a great help to them. All donations can be dropped off at 220
S. Broadway, Turlock between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mondays thru Fridays. Any
questions please contact Esther at United Samaritans Foundation 209 668-4853.

help those in need in our community.

of non-perishable food.
This is the 20th year that we

TOUCHING A LIFE: Providing a sense
Your donations provide more than just a lunch, they help people to feel a connection
to their community. Here is Jose’s story as shared with our staff. Jose is a disabled
60 year old man who speaks very little English. He gets around in a motorized
wheelchair. He has been utilizing United Samaritans Mobile Lunch Program
for the past five years. He feels the staff on the truck care about him. When
asked if the lunch truck provided his only meal of the day, he replied most of the
time it is. The truck also provides a social outlet for him. He is always excited to
see everyone and to visit with them at the lunch stop while he waits to get his
lunch. He has become close to these folks and he considers them his family.
