OCC Annual Charity Century Ride


Proceeds will benefit The Samaritan Center:

The Samaritan Center is a 501c3, interfaith effort of community members committed to serving the hungry and those in need in order to promote their welfare dignity and self-sufficiency. It is rooted in the belief that sound nutrition is the first step in enabling people to cope and become productive, self-sufficient members of society. Since 1981 Samaritan Center’s mission has fought hunger in the greater Syracuse community by providing nutritious hot meals to anyone in need 7 days a week – no questions asked.

Paired with these meals is the case management support and access to services that help our guests move on to a more positive future.

Our guests include the young and the not so young, those who are well educated and those who are not, individuals and families, people whose lives are bound by the prison of substance abuse, people who are well and those who face the challenge of illness.

Men, women and children who have in common their humanity, their poverty and their sincere gratitude for a place of safety and warmth and a nutritious meal offered every day of the year.
