people think that pennies possess very little power. Five
hundred pennies might get you a fast food meal. Ten thousand
"Lincolns" might buy you and your family a nice
dinner. Pennies may have found a home in the "give-a-penny,
take-a-penny" bin at the local gas-up mart, but one-cent
coins remain far removed from affecting your bottom line.
Samaritan Ministries discovered that pennies possess miraculous
powers! Pennies ease the pain of poverty, inspiring people
to take control of their lives. Samaritan found that 27
pennies working together pay for a warm, nutritious meal.
A few hundred pennies give shelter from the cold, providing
people with hope in our community. A few of those laughed-at
Lincolns do some serious work in our community. Who knew
the little penny could do so much?
Samaritan Ministries celebrates the power of the penny each
fall with 'The Penny Campaign'. The Penny Campaign, Samaritan
Ministries' largest fundraising event of the year, accounts
for about 25% of Samaritan Ministries' operating budget.
People throughout the Triad collect coins in jars throughout
the months of October and November. The coin collection
happens the first Saturday in December at Thruway Center
in Winston-Salem. It's a day of fun and fellowship with
WXII's Cameron Kent and the Samaritan team.

2003 NFL season is in full swing! Football teams will spend
the next few months bumping heads, separating the contenders
from the pretenders. Well, how would you like to support
the real "Winning Team" Super Sunday in January?
Here's your chance! "Souper Bowl Sunday" allows
Church youth to raise awareness of hunger in our community
while raising money for Samaritan Ministries. Church youth
wear the jersey of their favorite NFL team and collect money
in Church on Super Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2004. The money
raised allows Samaritan Ministries to serve warm, nutritious
food to our guests during the cold winter months.
For more information on how to get on the Winning Team,
call Jeff Hardin at 748-1962, extension 25.
costs at the Samaritan Soup Kitchen hover around 27 cents
per meal! One reason food costs run so low is because of
the generosity of people in our community that make food
donations or hold canned food drives. Food drives are a
fun way to help Samaritan Ministries, and educate people
about the problem of hunger in our community. Talk to your
neighbors and friends, or Sunday school class about organizing
a canned food drive. Call 748-1962 for more information.
your church or school group has the time and talent, why
not have fun and help people in need? Each year, groups
hold car washes, golf tournaments, raffles and other fun
get-togethers to benefit Samaritan Ministries. Call Samaritan
if you'd like to raise money and the spirits of people in
