Farewell Message:

It has been a life changing experience fulfilling the mission of United Samaritans Foundation. I cannot fully express my gratitude for the opportunity I’ve had to lead USF in its ministry to feed the hungry and serve the needy. When I reflect over the past 19 plus years that I have been with USF, and the lives we have touched I feel truly blessed. But in time, one must make decisions in life that allows us to pursue other personal interests. I am looking forward to having more time with my family, especially my grandchildren. August 28th will be my last day as Executive Director. Beverly Hatcher, has been appointed as the Interim Executive Director. She will do a great job of leading USF. She has the heart and passion for the work we do.

I am thankful to the Board of Directors for giving me the opportunity to serve the needy in our community through the good works of United Samaritans Foundation. I am especially thankful to all of you who have supported and continue to support the mission of United Samaritans Foundation to feed the hungry in our community with your time, talent, and treasures. In the past twenty years, United Samaritans Foundation has been able to serve over 8 million lunches, provide emergency food boxes to countless families, help the homeless, provide clothes for the needy, and to offer hope, all because of you!

May God bless you and the continued success of USF, and its employees, volunteers, donors, and Board of Directors!
Barbara Bawanan
Executive Director

Thank You to Our
Shoe Angel!

We were blessed with a generous donation to purchase gift cards for shoes for children going back to school. Thank you to our Shoe Angel! You too can be a Shoe Angel and put a smile on a child’s face. You can do so by either making a monetary donation designated for shoes or by donating Payless Shoe gift cards. The need is ongoing. To our mystery Shoe Angel who sent us gift cards in the mail, Thank you!

American Greeting Cards
Employees Give Back

Thank you to the volunteers from American Greeting Cards. We had a large group of their employees volunteer at the end of July to help with our Emergency Food Box Program. Staff was very appreciative to have such a great group to help them process applications and distribute the food boxes. It made the process run smoother. Thank you. We are grateful for the many businesses that set aside time for their em-ployees to volunteer as a group project at United Samaritans Foundation. Please contact Esther at 209-668-4853 for volunteer opportunities.
