Good Samaritan: Madge Burchyett

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I would like to nominate Madge Burchyett for being a Good Samaritan. She goes above and beyond the duty of a good neighbor and friend. She has opened her home to foreign students as well as young people who needed a place to live while they get their lives in order. She has gone to bat for a young couple to help arrange for medical care, transportation, food and housekeeping services in a time of need. She is always willing to take a meal to someone, transport someone who needs help or meet whatever need they might have. She doesn't sit back and wait to be asked, she sees a need and supplies that need, always in a loving manner and with a friendly smile.
