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 indicate "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. Thank you for the wonderful donation of clothing that will be coming our way to help those in need in our community.

"For God so loved the world
that He gave His only Son, so
that everyone who believes in
Him will not perish but have
eternal life. God did not send
His Son into the world to condemn
it, but to save it"

(John 3:16-17).

Letter Carrier's Food Drive

On Saturday May 10th, 2014 the National Association of Letter Carriers will be collecting your donations of non-perishable food. This is the 20th year that we have been recipients of this canned food drive. This is helpful to us in providing food for our monthly Emergency Food Box Program.

TOUCHING A LIFE: Providing a sense
of community

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.

Hunger and Homelessness in California

Today, 4.6 million Californians, including
1.8 million children live in poverty.
A recent study of 75 food and shelter providers in
