Helping our friends at home
The story of the Good Samaritan coming to the aid of a stranger in Luke 10:29-37 is one of the most loved parables of the gospels. Like many Bible stories, its lesson has become part of our culture.
In the early 1950s, Dr. Nelson, the first administrator for what was then known as the United Presbyterian Foundation saw a need for residents outliving their resources. Staying true to our Christian mission, Dr. Nelson dreamed of a way for residents to remain in their safe and caring environment. He made a plea to the community, developing the Good Samaritan Program to help defray costs.
Since 1980, members of Salina Presbyterian Manor have been serving the needs of older adults in our community. But we are only able to follow our calling and mission thanks to the help of people like you.
This year marked our 43rd Annual Soup Supper, which supports our Good Samaritan Program. We have made a commitment to all Salina Presbyterian Manor residents to ensure they will always have a home, even when their financial resources become depleted over time by circumstances beyond their control.
We set a goal of $50,000 this year. We give a big thanks to all who have helped us achieve this commitment to help our friends and neighbors at Salina Presbyterian Manor.
