We want to bring joy, light, and service to the world. Whether it is across the globe, in our community, or right here at our church – we want to make a difference. Listed below are the various areas we are able to serve locally with the help of your donations and financial support. If you would like to be more involved in serving locally, please contact MICHELLE.

K Cups for Conley

We are excited to be reigniting our support of Conley Elementary School and we need your help! Our first support initiative is the collection of K Cups for the 100 staff members at the school. K Cup donations can be placed in the collection basket next to the welcome table in the foyer.

Want to be more involved in this partnership? You are in luck! We are looking for a few volunteers willing to act as the liaison between Good Samaritan and Conley, interested? Contact MICHELLE

Homeless Mats
Third Saturday of every Month, 1:00pm
Good Samaritan Foyer

Did you know that while plastic bags can be recycled, they require a different process that the City of Tallahassee does not provide listing plastic bags as “Not for Recycling?” Join us as we work to transform those plastic bags into portable sleeping mats for the homeless, helping the environment and the homeless at the same time!

Did you know each mat can take as many as 800 plastic bags to complete?! Bag donations can be dropped off at the Academy M-F or at Church on Sunday mornings.

Blessing Bags

We have started a new outreach and need your help! We are in continuous need of items and/or financial donations to assist in filling each Blessing Bag for the homeless and less fortunate. Each Blessing Bag contains one of each of the following items:
Granola bars, peanut butter crackers, small water bottles, tooth paste, tooth brush, socks, mask, bar of soap, wash cloth, small hand sanitizer, razor and deodorant.

If you would like to assist in the distribution of completed Blessing Bags they can be picked up on Sunday mornings.

Second & Fourth Saturday of each month
9:00am – 12:00pm
