July 2017 SMCDFA Monthly Meeting





Samaritan House & Second Harvest - Get to know us better!


Have you ever wondered what happens to the school supplies and toys we donate to Samaritan House? and what happens to the food we donate to Second Harvest? Come to our July 5 meeting to hear more about these great organizations that do much more than you may think in San Mateo County. Laura Bent, Chief Operating Officer of Samaritan House, and Bernadette White, Community Relations Coordinator for Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, will be there to give us a better understanding of the numerous programs they each offer in our county. Hopefully we will also find out new ways we can volunteer with these groups in the future.


As this program is brought to you by SMCDFA Community Services, we want to make a big effort to support both of these groups in July. We will be collecting school supplies for Samaritan House and canned goods for Second Harvest - and money is always welcome!

Supplies needed include lined paper, pencils, markers, pens (blue, black, red), highlighters, rulers, and binders.
