Another Day of Hope - 2019

Good Samaritan of Tullahoma in conjunction with The One Day of Hope Board of Coffee County, and Coordinating Churches and Agencies across Coffee County held its second annual “Another Day of Hope.”

 

On Saturday, April 13th 2019, the gym doors at First Presbyterian Church of Tullahoma were open to all who were in need in our area.  The event was from 10:00 am till 1:00 pm.

Each Year around Easter, we seek together to minister to those in our town, county and local area by providing access to free clothing and a lunch, a chance to speak with medical professionals and share a prayer request, to take home some groceries, just to name a few of the things we provided during “Another Day of Hope.” 

 

Participants included:

 

  • Tullahoma Lion’s Club – vision screening

  • Imagination Library

  • United Way – books

  • Contact Lifeline and Family Counseling Center

  • Partners for Healing – health screening

  • Metro Industrial Staffing – employment counseling

  • Legal Aid Society

  • Good Samaritan of Tullahoma – free clothes and dignity items,

  • Highland Hills Church of Christ – pray request table and children’s activity table,

  • Russell Barnett Ford

  • Alzheimer’s Tennessee

 

Unfortunately this year we had to cancel Another Day of Hope due to the COVID - 19 Pandemic. We are working with local agencies and hope to bring Another Day of Hope in 2021.

Good Samaritan of Tullahoma

2020

A meal to share is a simple but sweet gesture that many of us take for granted. We often forget about the thousands of people around the country who struggle to put food on the table. Thankfully, helping is easy when we work together.  

Our Food for Sharing program gives you the chance to donate food to help the hungry. You can choose one of three donation amounts, and we’ll donate the food in that bundle to local food banks. More than $86 million in food has been donated since 2009 to help alleviate hunger in our communities. 

We arrange for multiple food banks, pantries, and nonprofit organizations to receive the food to distribute to people in need. We also work with these nonprofit partners to eliminate waste in the donation process. None of this would be possible without your help. So let’s keep doing good together.

Since the opening of Publix Grocery Store in 2018, The Good Samaritan of Tullahoma has been the recipient of the Food For Sharing Program. (2019, 2020).

Our Ministry is grateful to be selected as the local non-profit partner to receive an abundance of food to serve our neighbors in need in the Tullahoma community.
