The Penny Campaign
people consider the penny an insignificant amount with
no buying power. In 1992, Samaritan unleashed the power
of the penny with its first Penny Campaign. This effort
for increasing awareness of hunger and homelessness
in our backyard while raising money for Samaritan has
become a community event.
The annual Penny Campaign is Samaritan’s major
fundraiser. Beginning October 1st and continuing through
November, schools, churches, families, individuals,
civic organizations and corporations across the Triad,
all join in saving their pennies and spare change for
the Samaritan Soup Kitchen and Inn.
The Penny Campaign collection day is held the first
Saturday in December. All unrolled collected coins are
dropped off at 110 Oakwood in Winston-Salem.
It’s a fun filled day with WXII’s Cameron
Kent and the Samaritan team.
Jar stickers, posters and other marketing materials are now available. Request yours by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling 336-748-1962.
Bowl of Caring - Sunday, February 2, 2014
What started as a grassroots effort in South Carolina
calling attention to hunger has grown into a national
fundraising event with over $40 million raised since
The Souper Bowl of Caring takes place on the NFL’s
Super Bowl Sunday, when millions of dollars are spent
on food served on game day. Church youth groups wearing
their favorite NFL team jerseys and carrying soup pots,
collect $1 from people as they leave their worship service.
All proceeds collected remain in the community benefiting
hungry and homeless people.
Church youth groups can show their support to end hunger
by participating on February 2, 2014 in Souper Bowl
Sunday and donating the monies raised to the Samaritan
Soup Kitchen and Inn. For additional information, visit
