As a college student, I never really knew all the things that Good Samaritan did for the community. I knew that they helped people with food, but not until I started working here did I understand that they try to help people with almost every facet of life. This organization works on a much larger scale than I realized, and I'm proud to work with them.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
solve the problems of homelessness and hunger in the tri-cities. It would use all the money towards helping others.
