Website: www.samaritanhouse.net

The Samaritan House provides Assiniboine students in need with access to their food hamper program. In return, the ACC Students’ Association supports the Samaritan House with initiatives to collect food donations.

To access the food hamper program, please contact the Samaritan House Ministries directly and say you are an ACC Student.

Halloween Food Drive: ACC Students’ Association brings students and other volunteers together on Halloween night, October 31, to collect non-perishable food items “trick-or-treat” style. This event takes place annually, and relies on volunteers and giving community members to be a success each year. If you would like to volunteer for this event, or if you have questions, please contact the ACC Students’ Association by phone (204) 725-8710 or by email accsa@assiniboine.net.

You will also find a food donation bin on campus throughout the year. We welcome students and staff to leave non-perishable food items for donation in this bin throughout the year and the ACCSA will collect them and deliver them to the Samaritan House!
