Going on a mission trip to Colombia in 2015 made Paula Sedillo realize the vast needs in the world.

The trip, coordinated by the Good Samaritan Society, involved serving seniors in Soacha, Colombia, alongside fellow Society employees.

“I came home and wanted to save the world, so I went on a second Society mission trip,” says Paula, the business office coordinator at Good Samaritan Society – Willow Wind in Prescott, Arizona.

When she returned home from the second trip to Colombia, Paula began to recognize the needs in her community. She met with a local organization, CCJ – the Coalition for Compassion and Justice that served at the Prescott Methodist Church and gave backpacks and supplies to school-age children. During the discussion, she learned there were also many preschoolers in need.
