The Samaritan – Spring/ Summer 2021
We’ve done a lot together this past extraordinary year. And, while it’s far from over, I want to recognize something pretty spectacular: our community’s outpouring of support since COVID began.
From volunteer hours and food drives to collections of hand-sewn masks and hand sanitizer, to a significant number of monetary donations, folks
like you dug deep and gave generously to help our community through this crisis.
- Provided 3 million meals – more than twice our previous record.
- Distributed over $10M in financial assistance – 5 times normal.
- Opened 3 new homeless shelters, two in less than 72 hours!
- Served 10,000 additional people, mostly families with children and seniors in need.
We were able to step up for the 25,000 people who came to us over the past year because of you. Thank you!
