"I love meeting and helping new people. In our training sessions we were told... 'you are the face of Samaritan...' as many times, we are the first contact people have with the hospital...so I always try to greet everyone with genuine cheerfulness and a 'helping' attitude."
- Twelve year volunteer veteran Sandy Brown
"I enjoy the positive feeling of helping and serving others...instead of a pay check, you are rewarded with many smiles and thank you's. An unanticipated reward has been the new friendships that have resulted from the association with other volunteers and the staff at Samaritan. I have a whole new circle of friends that I would never have known without volunteering. Finally, volunteering has given me a chance to ‘reconnect' with many former students and associates from 38 years of work in secondary and higher education, as they come to the hospital as visitors or patrons."
- Ten year volunteer veteran Dick Obrecht
