The Samaritan House Volunteer Department directs four programs.

  • Holiday Program – food distributions, toy shop
  • In Kind Donations – drives, non-food donated items
  • Children’s Services – Kids Closet, Wee Care, Bikes, Book & Backpacks, Summer Reading Club 
  • Volunteers 

With nearly 2,500 volunteers spread over nine locations we stay pretty busy. The best way to reach us is by email, since we are often not at our desks. Before you reach out to us, please investigate the website for available opportunities. We do not take court-ordered community service and have little or no opportunities for children under 12 on site.
