Coastal Hospice ‘Be An Angel’ program returns for 2022, spreading holiday cheer
EASTERN SHORE – Coastal Hospice is kicking off its annual ‘Be An Angel’ campaign, its largest fundraiser of the year. Coastal Hospice serves thousands of patients and their families across Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset, and Dorchester counties.
Each year, Coastal Hospice encourages Lower Shore Marylanders to be “angels.” During the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, angel ornaments are hung on Coastal Hospice Christmas trees displayed across the region. Each angel is personalized with the name of someone a donor wants to memorialize or honor.
We’re told, the campaign delivers crucial financial support. “So almost every life has been touched by Coastal Hospice or hospice in general and this is the time of the year that we can remember those loved ones and also give back to hospice for other patients in need,” says Tammy Patrick, Director of Advancement at Coastal Hospice. She adds, “It’s amazing it just keeps growing and we have amazing caregivers and social workers and without them, we couldn’t raise this money because their service is what’s helping everyone else in the community.”
The trees will be located in 12 locations across the lower shore, including right here at 47 ABC, through the end of December. Donations for the angels can be made at anytime this holiday season.
