SamariTeens -- Samaritan's teen volunteer group -- and Boy Scout Troop 70 flagged veterans' graves at Colestown Cemetery, Cherry Hill in collaboration with American Legion Post 372, the Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs, and the Cherry Hill Police Department. The teens respectfully placed American flags in time for Memorial Day to honor those who served our country in conflicts dating back to the civil war.
This activity is just one of the many ways Samaritan honors vets year round. Samaritan has earned the highest 4-star status in the national We Honor Veterans program -- a collaboration of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Veterans Administration.
The early years, filled with increasing memory lapses, are a constant reminder that it’s important to plan for the future. Patients and families must prepare for the more challenging symptoms of end-stage dementia -- and the intense level of care required. Click to learn more!
Pitman Thrift 2nd Anniversary Celebration
And the winner is... Karen Degliomini of Sewell!
Congratulations on winning a $25 Gift Certificate to
Samaritan's Pitman Thrift! Happy shopping!
Is a Samaritan Charitable Gift Annuity right for you? Find out at our June 28th seminar. A CGA earns a fixed income for life, a tax deduction; and outperforms CDs, money markets, and some dividends. This is not a sales session. We'll share information about a planning vehicle many find valuable. Join us at the Samaritan Center at Voorhees, 10:00 - 11:30, Wednesday, June 28. We’ll offer tours of the new Center and William Butler’s loaned exhibit, “Ascension.” Presenter Amy Leis, of Janney Montgomery Scott, is a volunteer member of our Planned Giving Committee. The seminar is free, but space is limited. RSVP: CRollins@SamaritanNJ.org

Beats transcend cultural, language, and societal barriers, and the health benefits of listening to music reach far beyond a simple tap of the foot -- especially in a hospice-care setting.
