We get by with a little help from our friends

****During COVID-19 we have a limited number of volunteer opportunities available at the Samaritan Center. We have changed our meal service format to a takeout or to go meal service. We have scaled back from 25 volunteers to 5-8 volunteers to help serve and prepare meals. For the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff we follow the below criteria for all who currently volunteer. Volunteers must

• be 18 years or older.
• be able to stand for up to 3 hours at a time and be able to assist with mopping and cleaning duties too.
• be willing/able to wear a face mask at all times.
• have no COVID-19 symptoms or temperature or have close contact with suspected or positive COVID-19 situation/individual in the previous 14 days.
• have not recently (within 14 days) traveled to any states that require a 14 day quarantine on return to NYS
• not be under any other quarantine or self-isolation directive

If you are able to meet the above criteria, please complete the individual application at the bottom of this page.


Helping or Hosting an Event or Fundraiser for the Samaritan Center

We not only rely on our volunteers to help keep our organization successfully functioning, we also depend on the multiple fundraising events which benefit the Samaritan Center. We always could use an extra set of hands – who couldn’t these days?  Volunteers are always needed to help with planning, soliciting donations, hosting a collection and staffing our annual events.   

To host or volunteer for a event, please contact our Development Director at development@samcenter.org
