Where’s Bill? A Tailgate Party at Samaritan House

Samaritan House is a respected program serving the poor in San Mateo County with hot meals, clothing, counseling, and a free health clinic.

The food program has a central kitchen which served 125,000 meals in the past year. The truck that does the distribution of hot meals to four sites is a workhorse and needed to be replaced. A PVF donor gave funds for a new truck. The grant was made “the usual way” for PVF: we know the agency and the director, we have funded before, we have made site visits. Thus this was a paperless grant with no hurdles.

To say “thank you” the volunteers and staff of the Samaritan House central kitchen held a tailgate party where we all ate lunch from the back of the truck. The truck driver said “this is special” as he stood with pride next to his new truck.
