Good Samaritan Center
The good work nonprofits do cannot be accomplished without dedicated volunteers. Union County Good Samaritan Center is no exception.
Volunteers work at the food pantry on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The pantry is open to clients from 10:00-11:45 on those days, but the volunteers work before or after hours packing emergency food boxes.
On average, the Union County Good Samaritan Center serves 40-50 families a month.
