GOOD SAMARITAN HOUSE
This year our goal is to have 500 people donate $10 each! All proceeds will support Good Samaritan House of Carbondale, which provides a food pantry, soup kitchen, emergency shelter, transitional housing, and emergency assistance to the area’s most vulnerable citizens. All donations stay local! Good Samaritan provides:
• Emergency Shelter or Transportation Services.
• Food Pantry to offer food and commodities.
• Soup Kitchen to provide balanced meals 3 times a day.
• Transitional Home for those who need help making a smooth transition to living an independent life again.
Since 1999, more than 2,000 race participants have been part of this great event, supporting Good Sam.
Will you take the pledge to stop hunger in our region?
This year our goal is to have 500 people donate just $10!
2020 has been a hard year for many. But for the most vulnerable, jobs have been scarce and more people are finding themselves in need. For just $10 you could help fight hunger in our region! That's the cost of one lunch if you went out to eat. Will you help?
