Walk for Love for USF

The Hughson Harvest Festival is proud to present the Second Annual Walk for Love, September 20, 2014 at the Hughson High School track, benefiting the wonderful non profits in their community. This event is a walkathon and the money that is raised by each non-profit goes directly to their charity. United Samaritans will have teams walking to raise money for our programs. We need walkers and sponsors alike. The event will take place from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. If you would like to be a team member, sponsor, or a walker please call Kathy Hobby at 209.668.4853 or email

Union Pacific Foundation Helps to Feed the Hungry
in our Community

On May 15, John Rogers, USF Board President, and Bev Hatcher, Assistant Director/Grants Administrator, were invited to travel on one of Union Pacific’s Heritage Fleet trains to join other UP Foundation grant award recipients in a check presentation. It is the first time United Samaritans has received grant funding from the Union Pacific Foundation. The funds will help USF continue to serve over 1,500 lunches a day thru our Mobile Lunch Program. Seating was in the second tier of the train with a great view of the surrounding areas. Also riding on the train were Union Pacific’s Police who were working with the Modesto City Police officers in a “sting operation” to catch drivers and pedestrians who were going around the down-positioned railroad arms at the crossings. They caught quite a few that day. We thank Union Pacific for their commitment to give back to the community where their employees live and work and to make it a safer place to be.

Making A Difference

Because of your faithful support, meals served on our trucks during the month of May 2014, were 30,583.

In our Emergency Food Box Program, 261 families (528 people) were provided with a three-day, three meals per day supply of food, equaling 4,752 meals.

Total meals provided in May 2014 through both the Daily Bread Ministry lunch trucks and the Emergency Food Box Program - 35,335.

In April 2014 we served 388 unduplicatedadults and 188 unduplicated children in our Clothes Closet. Did you know that USF also provides a laundry and shower facility and a postal mail station for the homeless?

We couldn't do all this without your help. Thank you!

United Way
Day of Action
with Varco Pruden

On Saturday June 21’st 10 employees of Varco Pruden held a painting and clean-up “party” at United Samaritans Foundation in Turlock for the United Way’s “Day of Action” in Stanislaus County. The volunteers gave USF’s Homeless Supportive Services Center and the kitchen hallway a fresh coat of paint. They also worked to clean the floor in our warehouse – no small task. We are so grateful to our friends at Varco Pruden. USF really appreciates all of our volunteers. We could not do all that we do without their help. Thanks again Varco Pruden!!!

Hunger and Homelessness in California

4.3 Million people experience hunger each year in

Today, 4.6 million Californians, including
