In its twenty-two years of service to the residents and visitors of Berlin and the surrounding community, Atlantic General Hospital and Health System has seen much growth and continues to evolve to provide the right path to good health. With the  5 Rights of the hospital’s 2020 Vision 5-Year Strategic Plan in mind – Right Care, Right Place, Right People, Right Partners, Right Hospital ­– the new www.atlanticgeneral.org provides an improved tool for finding health care providers, health education opportunities, and information for truly coordinated care.

Some enhancements include:

Engaging Design

Updated graphic elements and an intuitive website structure help site visitors quickly find what they need.

Device Responsiveness

The layout of the website will shift to preserve legibility and ease of navigation, regardless of the device – desktop computer, tablet or smartphone – on which it is being accessed.

 

Updated Physician Directory, Locations and Services Listings

Content features allow for posting of secondary locations for provider practices as well as board certifications, fellowship training, links to videos and, in the near future, the capability to email providers’ offices to request more information or an appointment.

TCC Donating 100,000 Filled Backpacks

 

Pocomoke, MD (July 28, 2015) – Residents in the Pocomoke area are about to benefit from a national backpack giveaway campaign. TCC, the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer in the U.S., announces today that it will be donating 100,000 backpacks full of school supplies to children through its annual School Rocks Backpack Giveaway. Since 2013, the company has donated 260,000 backpacks filled with supplies to ensure children are well-prepared for the start of the school year.

More than 400 participating TCC stores across the U.S. are inviting local families to bring their children to the store between noon and 2 p.m. on Aug. 1 to pick up a backpack filled with pencils, paper, a pencil box, folders, glue and other school supplies. One backpack per child present will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

Participating store(s) are located in Pocomoke, MD, Ocean Pines, MD, and Exmore, VA. Each participating TCC store will donate over 200 backpacks. All leftover backpacks will be donated to local schools.

In 2014, the National Retail Federation predicted the average person with children in grades K-12 would spend $101.18 on school supplies, such as notebooks, pencils and backpacks, compared to $90.49 in 2013. With nearly 16 million children in the U.S. living in poverty, TCC is working to alleviate the rising costs of school supplies through this annual program.

“We are grateful to be able to play a role in ensuring that as many children as possible are set up for educational success,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of TCC. “The backpack giveaway is something that both our employees and customers look forward to every year. It is our ultimate goal to make a difference equally in the lives of our employees, customers and the communities where we live, and this effort is one in which we accomplish all of these objectives.”

The School Rocks Backpack Giveaway is one of TCC’s four annual Culture of Good initiatives. Other programs include providing canned goods to local food banks, giving supply packs to 3,500 teachers across the U.S. and volunteering time to improve the environment.

To learn more about the company, visit www.TCCRocks.com. Consumers can connect with TCC on social media at http://www.facebook.com/tcctalk and @TCCTalk on Twitter.

More information about the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway initiative is available on Youtube: https://youtu.be/Ge2cBkv92ig?list=PLKXpw4AiDgOwZv-pkypaD4fTc0SgUI2LU

Supporters of the School Rocks Backpack Giveaway are encouraged to use hashtag #cultureofgood on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to help spread the word. Learn more about TCC’s Culture of Good by visiting www.cultureofgood.com

Annual GOLD School Supply Program Underway

 

CONTACT:  Claire Otterbein, Executive Director

 July 21, 2015

Annual GOLD School Supply Program Underway

Snow Hill—School supplies are already filling store shelves, and Worcester County GOLD’s School Supplies for Students project has begun.  The program seeks to ensure that every student in Worcester County has a backpack filled with the necessities on the first day of school.  Last year the program provided backpacks and supplies for 529 children from low-income families in Worcester County. 

GOLD is seeking community members who are willing to sponsor a child through the program.  Sponsors are matched with a specific student and provide a backpack and supplies for him or her.  There are students in pre-K through high school needing sponsors.

“Studies show that growing up in poverty can have lasting effects on children,” said GOLD Executive Director Claire Otterbein.  “One of the things that is known to mitigate these negative effects is access to quality education.  We’re lucky to have great public schools in Worcester County, and having the necessary supplies supports a child’s success,” she added.

Individuals, businesses and community groups willing to be sponsors are asked to call GOLD at (410) 677-6830 or complete the sponsor form available on the website,www.worcestergold.org.  The list of supplies needed for each school and grade will be provided.  Along with sponsors, monetary donations to purchase supplies for children who are not matched with a sponsor are also needed.

The mission of Worcester County GOLD is to improve the quality of life of local citizens for whom traditional means of well-being support is not fully available.  A non-profit organization, GOLD promotes dignity by providing financial aid to families in crisis, vulnerable adults, and children in foster care.  Since its beginning in 1996, the organization has provided emergency financial assistance to thousands of Worcester County citizens, along with coordinating special projects to provide school supplies and holiday gifts and food to those in need.

Purnell Museum Kicks off Heritage Arts for Kids Series

 

Snow Hill, MD—The Julia A. Purnell Museum has just begun its most popular summer offering for children: a series of heritage arts activities where kids learn about the area’s history through hands-on projects. The activities are offered every Wednesday through August 12 from 1-3 pm. Throughout the summer, participants will create handmade Victorian toys, learn to play croquet in Byrd Park, and engage with the museum’s fascinating collection of local artifacts. Letting children experience history hands-on engages them with the ways people lived in the past and helps them to think about how those ways of living shape their experiences today,” says Julia A. Purnell Museum Executive Director Dr. Cindy Byrd.

Thanks to the generous support of the Berlin-Ocean City Optimist Club, general admission is free for children all year in 2015, and this includes the Heritage Arts for Kids workshops. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is not needed; simply drop in between 1 and 3pm. Kids should expect to spend about 15 to 30 minutes working on their projects; afterward, they are encouraged to enjoy the museum for as long as they like. To learn more about summer activities, contact the Julia A. Purnell Museum at (410) 632-0515 or visit the website at purnellmuseum.org.
