The Penny Campaign

Many 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 development@triadbiz.rr.com or by calling 336-748-1962.

Souper 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 1990.

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 www.souperbowl.org.
