The SAM Center Commissary

The SAM Center operates a free commissary for our veterans, service members and their widows to insure that their basic needs are being met. Our Heroes can pick the items that best meet their personal needs, or essentially "Go Shopping" on us at no charge to them. They can typically "shop" for enough items to last them for up to two weeks for an individual, couple or family. Our clients can take advantage of this service once a month (by appointment).

The simple ability for our Heroes to "choose" their own groceries and household goods mean more to them than most people can imagine. We are not simply handing them a box of food, we are giving them the opportunity to pick out the items that they, and their families, enjoy and prefer. This is a small token for the sacrifices that they made for us!

We need your help to make this all happen. The SAM Center is funded by private donations from individuals, companies and organizations that are thankful for the service of our veterans.

Please visit our DONATION page for more information on how you can help.

For more information on how to set up an appointment for the Commissary, please contact us by any means on our Contact page.

Below is a list of items that we most frequently need for the Commissary. We will try to keep the items most desperately needed marked with an "*".

Please Note: No brand names mentioned are an endorsement or preference and are offered as an example only. Some websites listed may supply coupons.
