Who Are We?

Shawano Area Matthew 25, Inc. (SAM25) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

 

The concept and planning for our group began in the winter of 2012 with a small group of individuals, who were aware of and concerned about the poor and homeless living in our community. The group has since grown to include representatives from local churches, civic organizations, public agencies, businesses and other concerned citizens.
