National Volunteer Week

  National Volunteer Week is April 19 – 25, 2020. Good Samarian Home has a very strong history in volunteerism. Almost half of our volunteers live on campus! We sincerely appreciate the dedication and enthusiasm of all of our volunteers and consider their time and talent as one of Good Samaritan Home’s treasures.

  A Message to Our Volunteers:

  We miss you!
  We look forward to the day when we can resume our ‘regular’ schedule and are able to see you again. Our staff and residents at Good Samaritan Home are working hard to stay safe and healthy.  With so much going on in the world right now, it is a saving grace to know that we will be able to work together again soon. You remain in our prayers each and every day, and we hope all is well and healthy for you and your families.  

  Thank you for your continued support of Good Samaritan Home.  It is through our efforts as a community that we will remain strong together. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay hopeful.
