VOLUNTEER AS AN INDIVIDUAL


Administrative Assistant
Monday-Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
There are many pieces to the Good Samaritan Community Services puzzle. The behind the scenes work can be heavy and has the potential to distract staff from their overall role with the agency. The Administrative Assistants are put in place to help with filing paperwork, answering phones, assisting with mailings to the community, etc. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Our Child Development Services Department caters to ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Our trained professional staff focus on providing our children with a fun curriculum in a safe classroom setting. Our Childcare volunteers will serve as an extra set of hands and eyes in our classrooms. Activities one might perform as a Childcare volunteers would be helping with snacks and meals, putting babies to sleep, and changing diapers. You might also assist in cleaning the rooms and toys.

Food Pantry & Commodities
First & Third Tuesday of Each Month
Each week our immediate assistance program hands out 100 bags of food to families in need through our Food Pantry. Our Food Pantry volunteers help stock, bag and organize food items during high volume hours. Once all bags are packed for the week, volunteers will make sure that pantry is organized and clean.

On Commodities Day(s), we accept a delivery of food from The Food Bank. This food comes wrapped and stacked on wooden pallets. The Commodities Day volunteers will work together to unpack, organize and bag the delivered food. Once this is complete, the volunteers will then pass the food out to our clients and help them load the food into the vehicles. The volunteers that assist during Commodities Day are a huge help to the entire agency!

Senior Center

With the only nationally accredited senior center in South Texas, we strive to provide a safe, enjoyable and active environment for our senior citizen clients. Our Senior Center volunteers help in all aspects of our daily program.

Each of these activities are in place to stimulate the mind and/or get the body moving.

Mentor
Monday-Friday 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
At Good Samaritan, we want to set the best example for our students. Through a program that focuses on the 40 Developmental Assets, we target areas where our students might need some extra attention. Students that show signs of risk are paired with mentors. Mentoring provides our students with a positive role model in their life. By engaging with our students, our mentors will provide a demonstration of these assets for our youth to witness first hand. Become a mentor and change a student's life.
