Rotary Club 7630 Donates to Patients at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton

Members of the Rotary Club of Easton, Maryland, District 7630, visited the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center at Easton in January to deliver coloring books and crayons to patients.

Rotary Club 7630 members Hugh Dawkins and George Hatcher, as well as Rotarian and hospital volunteer Ken Sadler, dressed as “Dr. Goodwrench,” delivered coloring book and crayon packages for adults and children in the Pediatric and Women’s Services units, as well as the Requard Center for Acute Rehabilitation as part of a community outreach initiative. Additional crayon and coloring book packages will go to the Emergency Department for pediatric patients and family members of patients. Patients were grateful for the visit and the gifts.

The Rotary Club delivered crayons and coloring books to patients in the Pediatric unit, as well as the Requard Center for Acute Rehabilitation and the Emergency Department at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton.

Hugh said, “Rotary, an international service organization, works in communities to provide ‘Service above Self,’ and always wants to bring joy to our neighbors. This is just a way to tell people Rotary Club members care.”

Dr. Goodwrench visits patients, loved ones and staff throughout the hospital as part of the Caring Clowns initiative to provide support, compassion and humor to those in the hospital. The Caring Clowns have been active in the hospital for more than a decade.
