Donate to Good Sam to honor a great mom

If you’re looking for a unique way to honor your mother this Mother’s Day, consider making a donation to the Good Samaritan Program. In return, you’ll not only provide assistance to a resident in need, but a monarch butterfly will be placed on our Good Samaritan tree in the lobby as a tribute to your mother.

“Everyone at the community has enjoyed the Good Samaritan tree in the lobby. It’s just a cheery way to greet our residents, staff and guests and we’re excited for it to morph into something that honors all the wonderful mothers in our lives,” said Joelle Freeland, marketing director at Rolla Presbyterian Manor.

The Good Samaritan Program provides funding to assist residents who outlive their resources through no fault of their own. Developed in the early 1950s, the Good Samaritan Program depends solely on donations from friends and supporters to care for seniors living at Presbyterian Manors.

“The Good Samaritan Program allows us to give residents and families peace of mind whenever they tell us they or their loved one are running out of money. Letting them know they do not have to move elsewhere is priceless,” said Ann Caudill, executive director of the Rolla Presbyterian Manor.

In 2017, 330 PMMA residents were supported through the Good Samaritan Program creating a charitable need of nearly $6.8 million.

“We have several family members from past residents that still donate, volunteer and are on our Mission Committee. They believe and are grateful for the Good Samaritan Program,” said Ann.
