We recently started an agency endowment fund at Akron Community Foundation as a way to ensure a permanent, predictable stream of funding for our mission. The Good Samaritan Hunger Center Endowment Fund welcomes gifts of all kinds, including cash, bequests, closely held stock, real estate, life insurance and retirement assets. Gifts can be made online at www.akroncf.org/give/GoodSamaritan or by calling 330-376-8522

Many children in the Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority area head straight to our hot meal program. For most, this is their only dinner.
Almost 80 percent of our diners at that weekly meal are children.
Darla and her husband try to make ends meet living on a social security check just above $1,000 a month.
Many times she cannot afford to buy groceries for her three grandchildren who she helps raise.
Patricia, a former teacher, went through her savings and lost her home while waiting to get on medical disability.
She depends on Good Samaritan to augment her food purchases.
Your gift helps the children of Barberton and those in need in the surrounding areas eat 40 meals.*Make Their Day *We use as much of your donation as we can to buy food. A small portion of your donation will go to cover administrative costs.
