Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian international relief organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.  Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ.

This person will also research and contact new prospective corporate donors that may be interested in supporting the ministry through gift in kind donations. The successful candidate will fulfill this volunteer role for a minimum of a 1 year term, with an ideal weekly time commitment of maximum 3 – 6 hours at the Calgary Head Office.
