Good Sam’s volunteers and staff understand life challenges—loss of job, medical expenses, family emergencies–often necessitate a need for additional help and that asking for help is sometimes difficult. Good Sam is here to help you navigate through your challenges by helping with your food needs and offering appropriate referrals for additional services. You will be welcomed and greeted as you enter our ‘home’ on 12th and State Streets.
