Ocean City Supporting Healthcare Workers

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

The Community is Supporting Atlantic General Hospital Healthcare Workers

So many acts of kindness, we can’t list them all.supporting healthcare workers

We had heard and seen from one social media page to another news report to a Zoom conversation about the different contributions Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, MD was receiving . We reached out to AGH for a more comprehensive understanding and Ocean City community has come through again!

We spoke with Caroline Phillips, Development Officer at Atlantic General Hospital Foundation. Phillips told us, “The outpouring of donations has been amazing.” 

Donations of all kinds have come in:

  • fudge
  • full meals
  • face shields
  • popcorn
  • taffy
  • coffee
  • t-shirts
  • pizza
  • socks
  • shoe covers
  • pretzels
  • hand sanitizer
  • breakfast platters
  • face masks
  • sandwiches
  • medical supplies
  • the list goes on

To see more of what was donated or the businesses, people, and organizations that donated go to AGH Foundation Facebook page.

“The outpouring of donations has been amazing.”

The Art League of Ocean City has started a community wide art installation encouraging heart designs of all kinds. The heart art can then be sent to the AGH to be distributed to all the healthcare workers. The Art League is also encouraging the hearts to be displayed in windows to show you are supporting healthcare workers all over.

Donations to AGH are still being accepted and appreciated.  AGH Foundation is taking donations through this website: www.agh.care/covid19relief or if you are interested in making an in-kind donation of supplies, equipment, or food for healthcare workers please contact the hospital’s administrative department at 410-641-9690 or COVID19donations@atlanticgeneral.org.
