Editor,

There are angels among us on the Eastern Shore.

We asked the community to join our Angel Appeal this holiday season, and the awe-inspiring response resulted in a record-breaking year.

Thanks to our neighbors, we raised more than $128,000 to fund hospice charity care for those in need right here in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester counties.

Last year, Coastal Hospice cared for approximately 1,300 patients in the region. The donations will help us provide care to patients and families with no resources and those with needs beyond their insurance coverage throughout the coming year.

These gifts will bring comfort and support to those who truly need it most in the end stages of life.

All of us at Coastal Hospice would like to express our sincere thanks for the generous contributions that made the 2018 Coastal Hospice Angel Appeal a success. Thank you for “Being an Angel.”

Alane K. Capen

President
