Penny Campaign is Samaritan’s signature community event, which has raised money to feed and house people in need for over 26 years.

The Penny Campaign kicks off in October when the call goes out to schools, churches, clubs and organizations to collect money. From October to December, you’ll see our penny jars in schools, churches and other locations collecting change, bills and checks.

It takes just 281 pennies to provide a warm meal for someone in need. It takes 2,774 pennies to provide a night of shelter to a homeless neighbor. Every donation makes a difference.

Collection Day is December 5, 2020, when all of the unrolled coins and other money is dropped off at 110 Oakwood (across from Thruway) in Winston-Salem or our new building at 414 E. Northwest Blvd.

Penny jar stickers and other marketing materials are available. To request yours, email: or call 336-448-2668.
