Samaritan Center Receives Check
JEFFERSON CITY - Governor Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon presented a check on Monday to the Samaritan Center for $1,868. The money was raised at the 2011 Governor's Prayer Breakfast. The center provides services for families in need.
Samaritan Center Executive Director Marylyn Defeo said the money will go toward buying hamburger meat to provide families in the area with a spaghetti dinner.
The center provides services to people in Cole, Osage, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, and southern Callaway counties. It offers families monthly pantry donations, clothing donations, medical and dental care, tax assistance, and much more. Defeo said the center serves about 99 families per day.
