A remarkable array of services helps make Sun City Center a safer, healthier and more enjoyable place to live. Most are provided by trained volunteers and are free of charge. The Emergency Squad provides ambulance service to residents in time of need. The Security Patrol keeps watch over our neighborhoods. The Good Samaritans’ SCC offers transportation and support services. Those are but a few of the unexpected services you’ll enjoy here. Our Newcomers Hospitality Program volunteers will be happy to tell you more.
Purpose: The Good Samaritans, a 501(c)3 charity, provides many support services needed by residents of Greater Sun City Center. We will transport ambulatory residents to medical appointments in Brandon, Bradenton and Tampa, with advance notice of 10 to 14 days. SCC Ride provides transportation for in-town appointments and shopping, from 9 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday.
The Samaritans also coordinate the Meals on Wheels program, have an Alzheimer’s support group, provide Alzheimer’s respite care, and can provide short-term companion care. For Samaritan Services information call 813-634-9283. For SCC Ride, call 813-633-6111.
