Urgent Needs

In-kind donations are gifts of goods and services. They can be made by individuals or organizations.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

This has been a time of significant un-budgeted expense to the organization’s very lean budget as we strive to ensure the safety of our most vulnerable neighbors.  Our staff continue to meet the needs of our guests during their motel stays, working long days with deep commitment.

We hope our community will come forward to support us and ensure that this important work can continue. Your donation today could bring much needed services and protection to our guests and staff. Thank you for supporting Good Samaritan Haven!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Good Samaritan Haven’s acceptance of donations during regular business hours has changed. Please email or call before dropping items off at the shelter -105 N. Seminary St. Barre.

To insure the health and safety of our guests, as well as make best use of our limited storage space, some items cannot be accepted.  If you have questions about items you would like to donate, please contact us or call (802) 479-2294.
