An Example For All,
A Blessing For Many
Audri McDaniel just turned six years old on February 12; she is in kindergarten at Our Lady of Fatima School in Modesto. For her birthday party she requested that guests bring food items to be donated instead of presents. Remember this little one is only six years old!!!!
Audri and her mom stopped by United Samaritans to donate 150 pounds of food for our food pantry after her party. USF staff gave her a tour of the facilities so she could see what we will do with her donation. She was fascinated. When she gets a “little older” we think USF will have a wonderful volunteer for our mobile lunch trucks. Audri is a great example of a kind and loving young person. Way to go Audri!

All food and dollar contributions you provide will benefit those in need

serve. Help to “FIGHT HUNGER” in our community. In 2015 we expect to serve over 385,000 lunches. We need your help.
Please, when making your donations indicate that it is for the Fight Hunger

March 6, 2015 is
Employee Recognition Day
United Samaritans Foundation recognizes and acknowledges the good works of our staff. We have a small staff that with the help of volunteers makes a difference everyday in their community by the work that they do. They are the hands, ears and heart of our agency. They are the hands that prepare and serve the lunches. They are the hands that prepare and distribute the emergency food boxes. They are the hands that sort the mail for the homeless, hang the clothes in the clothes closet, pour the coffee at the Homeless Support Services window, and answer the phones. They are the hands that pick up the donations, repair the trucks, writes for grants, pay the bills. They are the ears that listen to the needs of others and try to find ways to help. They are the heart of United Samaritans Foundation.
