By shopping on AmazonSmile, and selecting Samaritan House as your chosen charity, you will be supporting us every time you make a purchase.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to Samaritan House if you shop through does not do this, so make the switch – it’s a simple way to support us and at no extra cost to you!
If you choose to purchase items for us, designating the delivery address as 4031 Pacific Blvd in San Mateo, we will receive the 0.5% in addition to your donation.
