Each year Good Samaritan Lodge offers a limited number of scholarships for local student applying for colleges. Applications are disbursed to each of the high schools in Adams County for students to pick up and fill out, and selections for the scholarship winners are normally picked by the beginning of April. For a copy of the application please contact your local high school's guidance department, or click on the link below.
Coats for the Community
In recent years, the Good Samaritan Lodge has strived to assist children and families with coats, gloves, hats, and other clothing. As our program continues to grow, we are extending this to local churches, homeless shelters, as well as woman's shelters. While we are not able to completely satisfy the demand for this in our community, we know that every item of clothing makes a difference. We invite you to join us in supporting our community.
Local Donations and Fund Raising
Our lodge looks forward to supporting our local community in various ways to provide funding for local causes. Yearly, our lodge holds fundraising events which bring the community together and help our local businesses. We welcome every request for funding ideas. Our process starts with presenting to our lodge brothers what is needed most in our community and ideas on raising the funds to meet those needs. Together the lodge brothers agree upon and get behind the needs our hearts are drawn to. In the our 150 year history, Good Samaritan Lodge has taken pride in being a helping hand for those in need. We welcome your donation to help continue this tradition.
