Samaritan “Celebration of Life” gala honorees embody the generosity and heart of the volunteers who founded Samaritan, and the more than 400 volunteers who share their time, talent, and treasure each year. Many grateful families choose to give back as a result of a personal connection with us. They have felt the embrace of Samaritan’s expert and compassionate care, and are paying it forward. Others are investing in the health and future of our community. For this, and so much more, we thank them.
