Samaritan House Volunteer Group
Make and serve dinner for the Samaritan House!
Canvas Church provides dinner at 6:00 pm for the residents of the Samaritan House, our local homeless shelter, every Friday night. By making and serving the dinner, Canvas Church allows the Samaritan staff to focus on other concerns. The Samaritan House is one of our strategic Project 24/7 local partners, and provides a tangible and necessary role in our community. If you would like to join others in making and serving a meal on Friday evening, here are the available dates throughout the summer: 6/2, 6/23, 7/21, 8/11, 9/8. We would love to have you join us this summer!
