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 assistance.

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 bagging Easter 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 the Easter candy. We had a lot of happy smiles from clients when they got their lunch that day.

God Bless you all!
