As a not-for-profit, community-based organization, Samaritan relies on the support of a volunteer base of almost 400 individuals of all ages and talents. The organization continues to welcome all those interested in volunteering to join its growing volunteer team in selfless, compassionate service through a wide range of opportunities, including providing companionship to patients, becoming a Friendly Caller, assisting with office work, helping with fundraisers and more.

Samaritan recently honored its volunteers for notable service hour milestones and continued dedication to its mission at its 2024 Winterfest celebration – an annual event recognizing the hard work, commitment to excellence and compassionate care given by Samaritan employees and community volunteers.

Samaritan’s President and CEO Phillip W. Heath recognized the following individuals at the event for their notable hours of service:

Rodie Boyle (Moorestown) – 4,500 Service Hours

Boyle has committed 22 years of dedicated service supporting the organization in various capacities: assisting the Development department with mailings, phone calls and computer work, supporting Samaritan’s annual golf tournament Drive FORE! A Good Cause by registering golfers and “sitting holes,” greeting visitors at The Samaritan Center at Voorhees, helping The Samaritan Center for Grief Support collate beautiful clay hearts for bereavement packets and representing Samaritan at community events.

Judith Stewart (Medford) – 3,500 Service Hours

Stewart began volunteering at Samaritan two decades ago alongside Boyle, her longtime friend. She supports Samaritan’s Development team by maintaining its database of donors, helps at Samaritan’s annual golf tournament Drive FORE! A Good Cause and volunteers as a greeter at The Samaritan Center at Voorhees.

Peggy Heisler (Audubon) – 2,500 Service Hours

Since 2016, Heisler has dedicated her time and talent to supporting Samaritan as a hospice volunteer. She helps by providing companionship, comfort and respite for Samaritan’s patients and their families, as well as serving as a greeter at The Samaritan Center at Voorhees and a Samaritan ambassador at countless community events. Heisler also supports The Samaritan Center for Grief Support by making outreach calls to bereaved family members and sewing Memory Bears.
