Samaritan Honors Teen Volunteers from the Class of 2021
Mount Laurel, N.J. – Samaritan is honoring five friends and longtime “SamariTeens” volunteers who graduated from Rancocas Valley Regional High School this year. The teenagers, who began volunteering together as a group their freshmen year, remained active in their service throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I think they’re amazing for continuing to give while our program activities were very limited during COVID-19,” says Sharon Wenner, Samaritan’s Volunteer Recruiter & Youth Coordinator. “This group really went above and beyond, continuing to support our patients and families by creating clay hearts and holiday crafts, writing Valentine’s and Memorial Day cards, and much more.”
SamariTeens, Samaritan’s group for its 14- to 17-year-old volunteers, provides ongoing support to patients and families through visits, projects and participation in annual events.
The graduating SamariTeens are all members of Rancocas Valley Regional High School’s class of 2021 and residents of Lumberton, N.J.:
Mike Brown (Mike is the last of four kids in his family who all participated in SamariTeens)
Chris Kwiatkowski (Chris’ sister Isabelle is a SamariTeens volunteer as well)
Teagan Wallace (Teagan joins his siblings Cameron, who graduated a few years ago, and Donovan, who is currently a SamariTeens volunteer)
Samaritan welcomes volunteers of all ages. For more information about SamariTeens and other volunteer opportunities
