April 2021 Newsletter
We would like to thank our Good Samaritan Volunteers for your many contributions and precious time given to Good Samaritan over the years. We could not have provided this level of care to our community without you and your support. We would like to say a special "Thank you" to those that have continued to volunteer during these unprecedented times. We, the staff, can not express our appreciation enough!

2020 was a difficult year for everyone and COVID-19 had a profound impact in the way that Good Samaritan functioned. Our volunteers have been an integral part of day-to-day operations since the clinic opened its doors in 2002, and we have missed seeing all of you! With vaccinations now available, we are hoping that our volunteers are as anxious to return as we are to welcome you back.

We want to be respectful of our volunteers and their time and have thus reorganized our volunteer positions to reflect the needs of our ever-growing clinic. If you are interested in returning to a regular volunteer position, the positions below are currently available. We also have a “Special Assignments Pool”. This pool of volunteers will be called upon when we have community events or need help for special events.

Enjoy this heart-healthy, diabetic-friendly recipe from Louise Brown, Good Samaritan's diabetic nutritionist.
Cauliflower Fried "Rice"
Finely chopped cauliflower can be a remarkable nonstarchy side that is lower in calories and carbohydrates than rice. Or make it a main dish by adding chicken breast, shrimp, or tofu. To make this recipe even easier, start with packaged "riced" cauliflower and other vegetables that can be found fresh or frozen in many grocery stores. 
Ingredients
  • Olive oil (divided) 1 tbsp
  • Green onion (scallion) (chopped) 3
  • Low sodium chicken broth (no-salt-added, fat-free) 1/4 cup
  • Large carrots (finely diced) 2
  • Black pepper (ground) 1/8 tsp
  • Sesame oil 1 tsp
  • Soy sauce (reduced-sodium) 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Ground ginger 1/8 tsp
  • Cauliflower florets 3 cups
Directions
  1. Cut the cauliflower into small chunks and process in a food processor until rice consistency, or grate the head of cauliflower with a grater; set aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add chopped carrots and scallions and saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Add remaining 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil and sesame oil to pan. Add cauliflower "rice" and remaining ingredients and lower heat to medium-low. Cook cauliflower mixture for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Cauliflower should be tender, but not mushy.

Our annual Good Samaritan / Ed Delaney Memorial golf tournament has been one of our biggest fundraising events of the past years. In 2019 we raised over $20,000, which was used to provide the medically underserved in our community with quality, compassionate, and complete healthcare in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, Good Samaritan decided to cancel our three major fundraisers for 2020 including the Golf Tournament. The decision was not an easy one as much of the work that we do is made possible by the generosity of our community and faithful donors.
 
This year, we will hold our Golf Tournament once again on Wednesday, May 12th at the Big Canoe Golf Club. If you are interested in golfing in the tournament, please use the button below to register online. You or your business can also register online for the following sponsorship opportunities:   
Should you have questions about the tournament, contact Brad Herren by email at bradherren55@gmail.com or by phone at (610) 909-6200. On behalf of the Good Samaritan Golf Committee and the patients we serve every day, thank you for considering a gift to the Good Samaritan / Ed Delaney Memorial Golf Tournament.
