2019 Good Samaritan Appeal

"For it is in giving that we receive"
— St. Francis of Assisi
Stella Gilson

Stella Gilson, former resident of The Heritage, was a believer in our mission here at St. Paul’s. She believed in helping others who were less fortunate than her and was a loyal donor to the Good Samaritan Fund. This fund helps support St. Paul’s residents who can no longer afford to pay the full amount of their care. 

Stella moved to The Heritage in spring 2012 after recuperating for a short time at The Villas for rehabilitation services, from a fall she had at home. After her rehabilitation was over she knew it was time to make a permanent move. She told her daughter Betty Langietti, “I don’t want to live anywhere else but St. Paul’s.”

Betty and her husband Dan reside in Greenville and are also long time supporters of the Good Samaritan Fund. “St. Paul’s was so good to my mom that I would like to help someone that’s less fortunate so they can receive the same great care that she received,” said Betty. 

In addition to donating each year, Betty has served on the St. Paul’s Gala auction committee for the past two events. The gala is a biennial premier social event hosted at The Villas at St. Paul’s. Like the annual Good Samaritan Appeal, the event proceeds go to help offset the costs of benevolent care. 

At St. Paul’s we take pride in the fact that a resident is never asked to leave because of financial reasons. That provides peace of mind for our residents.

The Good Samaritan Fund is only possible through your support! The need for benevolent care is great. 60% of residents in skilled nursing care and 13% of those living in personal care cannot afford to pay the entire amount of their care. 

Please make your gift today to help residents in need. Thank you in advance for being such a Good Samaritan!
