About Us: In the Community
For the 3rd straight year Greater Chesapeake Hand to Shoulder physicians and employees have adopted Angels through the Salvation Army of Central Maryland. The Salvation Army Angel tree program is a Christmas assistance program that provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children ages 0-12 each year.
Our staff adopted 50 angels as well as several stockings and boxes of new toys for forgotten angels.
In November, Greater Chesapeake Hand to Shoulder participated in the Kennedy Krieger Institute Festival of Trees at Timonium Fairground by sponsoring and decorating 4 trees this year. This three day event features more than 700 trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses. The event benefits the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore that specializes in the care of children. This years event raised $1.2 million dollars.
Our staff split into teams to brainstorm and create each tree. Tree themes for 2017 were Attitude of Gratitude, A Tree for All seasons, Happy Feet and A Sweet Treat. The Happy Feet tree won 2nd Place for "Most Imaginative Theme".
