Penny Campaign Drive-Through Dropoff is December 2, 2023

Those who have collections of spare change and dollars are invited to drop off their gifts at the Penny Campaign’s Collection Day on Saturday, December 2, 2023. The drive-through event will be held at Truist Stadium (951 Ballpark Way—home of the Winston-Salem Dash) from 9 a.m. until noon on December 2. (please use the Broad Street entrance)

* Please note: The annual Penny Campaign benefiting Samaritan Ministries will be ongoing through December. All proceeds raised go toward guest services and the fulfillment of Samaritan Ministries’ mission: providing food, shelter and hope through Christian love.

In addition to traditional ways of collecting money, Samaritan Ministries will continue to have a virtual method to collect funds for the Penny Campaign.  Community leaders and individuals can still become “Penny Campaigners” by setting up a virtual campaign on Samaritan’s website and sharing the opportunity to give with others.  Contributions to the Penny Campaign can also be made directly online through December 31 at

“Our Penny Campaign truly demonstrates that every cent counts.  Every donation makes a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable in our community giving them a warm meal and a safe space this winter. We have established a variety of ways to support our Penny Campaign—including our traditional collection and we encourage people to get creative in engaging with the campaign to benefit our neighbors in need,” Samaritan Ministries Executive Director Jan Kelly said.

Sponsors of Samaritan Ministries Penny Campaign are First Horizon, Deuterman Law Group, Kathy and David Murray, WXII12 and the Winston-Salem Journal. WXII’s Lanie Pope is the Honorary Chair of the Penny Campaign.
