Volunteering

Interested in becoming more involved with the Samaritan Community Center?

At SCC our vision is to encourage all who enter our doors to find hope and experience positive life change. That statement doesn’t just apply to SCC clients. When we wrote “all who enter our doors” we meant it! Whether your interest is to serve as a volunteer, donate to your favorite program, or simply pray for us, there are many ways YOU can help. Below is a list of ways you and your family can get involved at SCC.

Businesses

Local businesses – both large and small – are incredibly important to the success of SCC programs. Whether it’s working at one of our centers as a team building exercise, hosting a food drive for one of our feeding programs, or simply taking up a donation among employees, without the community support from local businesses, our centers would not be able to offer the services we do in the ways we do.

Churches

SCC’s roots were planted by Fellowship Bible Church of Northwest Arkansas back in 1989 and, while we are now a stand-alone 501(c)3, we cherish those roots and continue to dig new ground to plant and establish roots with church partnerships throughout our four-county region. SCC believes that by working together with local churches, we can create partnerships that provide true beacons of hope to the hurting and hungry in our communities.

Civic Organizations & Schools

Is your sorority, fraternity, school cheer group or civic organization looking for a nonprofit partner? Samaritan Community Center is the perfect location for group community service activities, school fundraising partnerships, and of course, we will always accept either your in-kind or financial donations. Below is a list of just a few ways your school or civic organization can partner with the Samaritan Community Center.
