Giving Thanks Preserving Memories is an annual event that provides families with the gift of spending time together and preserving memories instead of preparing and cooking on what could be their last holiday together. To help ensure the health and safety of all participants, Samaritan staff and volunteers carefully packaged each meal delivery bag, which included turkey and side dishes from F&M Caterers, sparkling cider, handmade table runners and other holiday decorations, and provided the packages to families through contactless pick-up and/or delivery.

This year’s project was made possible through the generous support of many sponsors and donors including Special Friends of Samaritan, Berry Basket Quilters, Cherry Hill West Dynamics of Health Care Class, Daisy Troop 30373, SamariTeens, Sew What and Yards of Love – Nicole Hope.
