A donation to Good Samaritan Ministries in your loved one's name is the perfect gift this season!
We are incredibly blessed in Helena to have such giving and caring community members. Christmas is truly a time to give back, as we see by the countless people who come to donate their time volunteering, or Adopt a Family for Christmas, or donate their gently used goods to those who are less fortunate.
When you are doing your holiday shopping, and needing that last gift please consider making a donation to Good Samaritan Ministries to help your neighbor who is struggling. Giving a donation in your loved one’s honor is a perfect way not only to give, but to give back! A gift to Good Samaritan is a gift of hope.
You can donate to Good Samaritan Ministries and you will receive a custom certificate to give to your loved one.
Simply designate your gift as a Christmas gift and list the name of those who you are honoring.
You can also designate to which fund your donation will go:
1) The Assistance Ministry: helps struggling families and individuals with bills, rent, utilities, car repair, medical needs and much more
2) The Hunthausen Fund: Our newest Ministry to house the working poor in the Greater Helena Area, this fund will help clients with security deposits and first month’s rent in order to achieve stable housing.
The certificate will be created at the time of your donation when given at the Good Samaritan Thrift Store 3067 N. Montana Ave or will be emailed to you if you choose to donate online.
Take your certificate home and place it under the tree. Your loved one will be thrilled to know that your generosity has helped so many people in need right in your neighborhood.
Thank you for generously sharing and caring this holiday season.Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
Our Christmas Giving Tree Toy Distribution took place on Saturday, December 16th 2017 and was a huge success. Thank you for your generosity and support of our annual Giving Tree Project.
We were able to bless over
376 Helena Area children from 170 families this year!
Thank you to those who took Giving Tree tags, and bought presents. Thanks to those who gave hats, mittens, wrapping paper and monetary donations.
A special thanks to all our volunteers, those who took applications at Good Samaritan, to those who sorted toys, helped set up the store, and aided with distribution.
We are blessed to have such a giving community! Together we brought Christmas blessings to many of those in need! For more info click here!
May the miracle of Christmas fill our hearts with hope and gladness. Together we can make a difference by bringing Christ's love to those in need.
It's all about KARMA!
Give a little, throw it out to the wind and your good deed will be rewarded.
One of our volunteers, specifically from the fashion show, was asked after the show to run and get a six pack of soda for a couple of the staff. She was directed to go to a store she had never been to before, and hey, since it was a new store for her, decided to buy a lottery ticket. She didn't think much of the ticket and stuffed it in her purse. As she was laying down for the evening decided to scratch off the ticket. BAMB! she won a 2017 Jeep.
Needless to say we were very excited for her! Just goes to show, when you do good things, sometimes good things happen! Have a great day!
