Inspired by the story of the good Samaritan, we use Samaritan Summer as a way to put our faith into action, “to go and do likewise”
Inspired by the story that Jesus told about the good Samaritan, we started Samaritan Summer as a way to put our faith into action, to “go and do likewise” as Jesus said. The challenge has been issued for each one of us to personally serve others in need by helping out on at least one Samaritan Summer project between now and August 2020.
Our volunteers come from every walk of life – from children to young adults, moms, dads, grandparents, blue and white-collar workers, professionals and retirees. Together we look forward to helping someone in need without expecting anything in return.
