Area seniors gather donations for Ukraine

WACONIA, M.N. - Senior residents and staff of the Good Samaritan Society in Waconia recently donated nearly $4,000 to help the people and refugees of Ukraine

The community rallied together and chose to donate accumulated offerings from Sunday church services at the senior living facility and a special offering on “National Good Samaritan Day,” which is marked on March 13 each year to encourage kindness and selflessness as reflected in the Biblical parable.

For Good Samaritan resident Walter Schmidt, 86, the donation reflects “that a lot of people here have roots that when other people are in need, we must do something.”

“At Good Samaritan, we care about people,” adds resident Gloria Ely.
