(Dec. 21, 2018) Harrison House of Snow Hill, a nursing and rehabilitation center that serves Snow Hill and surrounding communities, has decided to “pay it forward” during the winter months by helping out a handful of seniors with their utility bills.

“Keeping homes comfortable November through February can be challenging for seniors on a fixed budget,” Sharon Raynor, Nursing Home administrator for Harrison House of Snow Hill, said. “We wanted to do something to help some needy residents in our local community and decided that helping to keep them warm this winter was a way of doing so.”

Each month, from November 2018 through February 2019, the community will select one deserving resident from Snow Hill or a surrounding town. The resident (or resident and their family) will receive $100 in assistance that will be paid directly to the individual or family’s oil, electric or gas provider.

Residents are asked to contact Tina Dykes, social worker at Harrison House of Snow Hill, at tdykes@harrisonseniorliving.com or to call 410-632-3755 for more details about the project.

Harrison House of Snow Hill is part of the Eastern Shore’s Harrison Senior Living family of senior communities that includes John B. Parsons Assisted Living (Salisbury) and Harrison House of Georgetown, Delaware.

The communities offer nursing, assisted living, memory care and short-and long-term rehabilitation therapies. For more information visit www.harrisonseniorliving.com.
