Open House highlights new walk-in freezer/cooler
On Tuesday, October 28, 2014, the Good Samaritan Center hosted an Open House to showcase their new walk-in freezer and cooler, made possibly by the Walmart Foundation State Giving Program.
While giving a tour of the Center and what it offers the needy in our community, volunteer Dan Paige explained, “Before we had fresh produce that would quickly spoil because we didn’t have enough refrigeration space. Now that we have the cooler, there is plenty of space to store our fresh food, and along with the new walk-in freezer, we can now offer more meat options for families.”
Ryan Fluesmeier, of Fluesmeier Leasing and Sales, donated both financial support and volunteer labor on this project. The Center welcomes volunteers and non-perishable food donations at their location in downtown Excelsior Springs at 108 Thompson Avenue.
The Good Samaritan Center offers programs throughout the year to provide life skills and education to the community.
