I would like to thank personally all of the angels who contributed so generously to Coastal Hospice’s annual Angel Appeal fundraiser. Our wonderful supporters contributed more than $82,000 to help fund the charity care we provide.
Last year, Coastal Hospice cared for nearly 1,000 patients and families on the Lower Eastern Shore and provided more than $515,000 in charity care to patients who lack the resources to pay for the care they desperately need.
The average gift this year was nearly $72, which will have a significant impact on the care Coastal Hospice provides.
For example, $72 can pay for one month of medical equipment for a patient at home.
We sincerely thank everyone who generously donated to our Angel Appeal drive.
Alane K. Capen
President, Coastal Hospice & Palliative Care
