CELEBRATING 20 YEARS SERVICE
Legacy of Hope 2014Legacy of Hope 2014

The Legacy of Hope event will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at Larsa Hall in Turlock (Denair). Come have a fun-filled evening and enjoy a hosted bar, great food by Toscana’s, silent auction and an exciting live auction. Call today before all the seats are taken.

Why participate? How many people do you know that go hungry every day? United Samaritans Foundation serves over 30,000 lunch meals monthly to hungry men, women and children, five days a week. Last year alone, in addition to the lunch program, we served 6,791 individuals through our Emergency Food Box Program. It’s because of YOUR support that we are able to provide these services to so many people in need.

What do our food programs mean to those we serve? In their words: “it means something to eat…keeps me from going hungry….able to feed my kids….helps with the groceries….provides food I can’t afford to buy….can save money for other necessities…independence….helps me to stay healthy.…I can count on having something to eat….a chance to connect with people who care…food for my family….without it I would not be here.…it helps me survive….it gives me hope!”

Help us continue to build that Legacy of Hope for families and individuals in our community in need. Call 668-4853 for tickets today or to make a donation
