Good Samaritan Ministries seeks help with Adopt-a-Family holiday program

Denise Czuprynski Gianforte Family Foundation

Good Samaritan Ministries has kicked off its annual Adopt-a-Family program and is looking for donors and volunteers to help Helena-area children and families who might not otherwise receive gifts at Christmastime.

The program pairs donors with families to spread Christmas joy throughout the community.

The nonprofit is also raising final funds to install a new roof and HVAC system for its thrift shop and office building at 3067 N. Montana Ave. Roof installation is nearing completion, according to Marketing Coordinator Sarah Grantham.

“We’ve raised more than $900,000, above the original projected cost, but still need to raise $183,000 more, as actual costs have risen dramatically since we began the project,” she said in an email.
