The Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill in Smyrna is seeking community help in sponsoring residents in need for the holidays.
The hospital offers three sponsoring options:
- Adopt a resident: DHCI provides the sponsor with the resident identification code and a wish list requested by the resident. The sponsor will buy the items and return the gift, unwrapped in a gift bag, to the volunteer services office or switchboard operator at the facility in Smyrna. We suggest spending no more than $25 per resident.
- Monetary donation: Sponsors can make a donation by check or gift card and leave the shopping to DHCI’s Volunteer Services. Monetary donations can be mailed to the Volunteer Services office, 100 Sunnyside Road, Smyrna,19977. All money donated is used to purchase gifts for the residents.
- General donation: DHCI can provide sponsors with a list of suggested gift items. These items are used during the holidays to fill gift bags for residents who are not sponsored and used throughout the year to fill birthday bags and special requests.
