There are truly angels among us. In November, we asked you, our neighbors on the Lower Shore, to “Be an Angel,” and 1,163 of you responded, giving us a record-breaking year, raising more than $118,000.

All of us at Coastal Hospice would like to thank you for contributing to help fund the charity care we provide.

Last year, Coastal Hospice cared for nearly 1,200 patients and families in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties and provided more than $600,000 in charity care to patients and families who have no resources for care or have needs beyond their insurance coverage.

The average gift this year was $101, which will have a significant impact on the care Coastal Hospice provides. For example, if you made a $100 donation, you paid for one month of oxygen for a patient at home.

We sincerely thank everyone who took the challenge to “Be an Angel.”
