Cumberland Good Samaritans has been working to address the unmet needs of families in Cumberland County for more than 35 years with a multitude of programs that address crisis and long-term needs. Such programs could not exist without the generous support of volunteers who roll up their sleeves and give their time and talents to the organization. Whether it be helping to stock the largest food pantry in our community, distributing food to thousands of low-income senior citizens each year, or giving a few hours each week to assist in operations of the thrift store, volunteers make it all happen. Cumberland Good Samaritans continues to have a mission to serve the unmet needs of the people of Cumberland County. The organization strives each day to take one need at a time and determine what can be done to improve a person’s circumstances or situation. Lives are being changed for the better with a hand up through direct services and social service programs. This is made possible through the revenues generated by a large thrift store where quality, affordable items perfect for both bargain shoppers and those on a budget can be found. The necessary funding is used to operate many programs where lasting change is being made for the families and individuals of our community. These programs range from maintaining the largest stocked food pantry in Cumberland County, to providing emergency support services, educational scholarships, and resources to help you find your next job. We also work with Cumberland Heights Rehabilitation Services to help provide intervention to our community. CGS is also a recipient of United Fund of Cumberland County support. “Making A Difference in Our Community For Over 35 Years!” 281 10th St. • Crossville, TN 38555 • (931)484-3225 www.cumberlandgoodsamaritans.com Cumberland Good Samaritans is a non-profit organization that operates to address the unmet needs of the people of Cumberland County through: Emergency Help With Bills Not Affiliated with Good Samaritans Society Fairfield Glade.
