BENEFITING: SAMARITANS OF NEW YORK INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 25, 2016
Samaritans 4th Annual 'BE A FRIEND' 5K Walkathon on Sunday, September 25 helps fund the free programs and services provided by Samaritans Suicide Prevention Center, whose mission is to prevent suicide and save lives.
Samaritans operates NYC's only 24-hour suicide prevention hotline, support groups that provide solace to those who have been touched by suicide, and education programs that teach the public and health professionals how to help people in crisis.
Whenever a person in distress needs a place to turn, a shoulder to lean on, someone to talk to who will take them seriously and listen--Samaritans Is There!
Samaritans is a group of devoted members of the community providing those who are scared and overwhelmed, hesitant to seek help or access traditional clinical services with an alternative, a place they can trust.
Samaritans serves people of every age, background, sexual and social identity, race and culture. In NYC they say, "When you need someone to talk to, you call Samaritans."
Please support this remarkable group of caring individuals who provide help to the people of NYC's culturally diverse communities. It is important work that helps save lives. Every donation is 100% tax-deductible.
