This year marks the 43rd Annual Soup Supper, which supports the Good Samaritan Program. Salina Presbyterian Manor (SPM) has made a commitment to all Salina Presbyterian Manor residents that ensures they will always have a home, even when their financial resources become depleted over time by circumstances beyond their control.
SPM would appreciate your support for this annual event. With a goal of $50,000, they hope you can help them achieve their commitment. Checks can be made payable to Salina Presbyterian Manor with the memo “Good Samaritan Program,” and can be mailed to 2601 E. Crawford, Salina.

They would also like to invite you to YaYa’s Euro Bistro Salina located at 251 S. Santa Fe on Thursday, October 26th from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. where 15% of the proceeds of your purchase will support the Good Samaritan Program. The executive director of Salina Presbyterian Manor, Melissa Brumbaugh, would personally like to thank you for your consideration of a gift to the 43rd Annual Soup Supper.
The story of the Good Samaritan coming to the aid of a stranger in Luke 10:29-37 is one of the most loved parables of the gospels. Like many Bible stories, its lesson has become part of our culture.
In the early 1950s, Dr. Nelson, the first administrator for what was then known as the United Presbyterian Foundation saw a need for residents outliving their resources. Staying true to our Christian mission, Dr. Nelson dreamed of a way for residents to remain in their safe and caring environment. He made a plea to the community developing the Good Samaritan Program to help defray costs.
Since 1980, members of Salina Presbyterian Manor, have been serving the needs of older adults in our community. But, they are only able to follow our calling and mission thanks to the help of people like you
"The Good Samaritan Program means that loved ones have security for their needs as they age. This program made it possible for my parents to live out their last months very comfortably. They supported the Soup Supper, and we are proud to be able to pay it forward.”
