All of us have seen the images on the news showing the brave caregivers who every day put their lives on the line for us.

We have our own local heroes here at Atlantic General Hospital who are working hard to keep us healthy and safe.

These are our friends and neighbors – doctors, nurses, aides, office staff, lab technicians, ambulance drivers, housekeeping staff, maintenance, food preparation staff, and so many others. We need to show them we think and care about them.

We are calling on our community to show support for our local caregivers at AGH by sending hugging hearts with messages of encouragement and support to the hospital.

You can download images of the hugging heart from the Art League’s website at www.ArtLeagueOfOceanCity.org or on the Art League’s Facebook page.

The hugging heart is available as both a color image to print directly on home printers, and also as a coloring book-style page that can be printed for children and family art projects.

Finished hearts can be mailed through the Post Office to: Atlantic General Hospital, Att: Caroline Phillips, 10320 Old Ocean City Blvd., Berlin, Maryland 21811. Or digital hearts can be uploaded to COVID19donations@atlanticgeneral.org.

Thank you, neighbors, for having a heART and sending a hug to those we count on.

Rina Thaler

Executive Director, The Art League of Ocean City
