Chicken and dumplings dinner raises more than $16,000


Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s annual chicken and dumpling dinner raised $16,000 for the Good Samaritan Program.

More than 600 dinners were served to the Farmington community at the annual chicken and dumplings fundraiser March 19. All proceeds of the dinner will benefit the Good Samaritan program at Farmington Presbyterian Manor.

Volunteers and staff members united in the Fellowship Hall of the Presbyterian Church to serve dine-in and carry-out meals prepared by Presbyterian Manor’s Dining Services department.

The Good Samaritan Program serves residents who have exhausted their financial resources. This totals more than $950,000 in unreimbursed care each year. This year’s dinner raised more than $16,000 and donations are still coming in, said Jane Hull, executive director of Presbyterian Manor.

“Each year I am humbled by the generosity of the local community,” Hull said. “I would like to thank the sponsors, staff, advisory committee, volunteers, residents and their family members for their generosity and tremendous efforts.”
