During the holidays, Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill (DHCI) and Governor Bacon Health Center (GBHC) rely on the generosity of community members, including neighbors, local businesses, community organizations, and volunteers to help fulfill residents' wishes. The facilities seek support from the community in "adopting" residents who have little family support or by making other donations.
There are several ways to help:
Please see the Delaware Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD) contact information page for DHCI and GBHC locations and mailing addresses. Gifts for individual residents should be clearly labeled. To allow time for processing, DHCI and GBHC staff kindly request that all donations be made by early December.
To participate, please contact Jennifer Bobel, Volunteer Coordinator for DHCI and GBHC, at Jennifer.Bobel@state.de.us or 302-223-1011.
