St. Andrew the Apostle Good Samaritans

Our Good Samaritan Ministry at St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church seeks to bring a measure of God’s love and mercy to others by sharing the blessings of food and other resources with those who are in need. All those who walk through our doors are seen as our brothers and sisters in Christ and will therefore be served with great respect and compassion.

Our Good Samaritan Ministry and Food Pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers and based in the Caring Ministries Office (northwest corner of the campus).

Hours of operation: Monday-Thursday from 9:00-11:00am.
480-899-1990 x203

Food donations can be dropped off at all Masses in the wagons located in the Narthex or dropped off directly at the Caring Ministries office during our open operational hours of Monday-Thursday from 9:00-11:00am.

The Good Samaritans also coordinate St. Andrew's-sponsored community projects, like our annual the Thanksgiving Food Drive.

The Food Pantry needs nutritious, non-perishable foods:

  • Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup)
  • Tuna and canned meat
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned foods with pop-top lids
  • Low-sugar cereals
  • Canned vegetables (low salt)

Please avoid donating items packaged in glass.

We request that you do not donate bulk quantities of rice, flour, or sugar. Although we appreciate and can utilize every donation we receive, we don't have the repackaging facilities needed to properly distribute such items.
