Atlantic General Hospital SAFE Program Sponsors Cell Phone Drive for Domestic Violence Victims

10-04-2006
In recognition of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Atlantic General Hospital’s SAFE Program will sponsor a cell phone and lipstick drive from October 10 through October 31. The donated cell phones are reprogrammed for victims of domestic violence so they may access 911 if needed. Used lip stick vials are recycled into additional resources for the victims.

Either item may be dropped off at any of six Atlantic General Hospital and Health System locations:

• Atlantic General Hospital, Main Lobby or Emergency Department Registration waiting area
• Townsend Medical Center, on 10th Street in Ocean City
• Ocean Pines Primary Care Office, on Racetrack Road in Ocean Pines
• Dr. Arzadon’s office at the Atlantic Health Center on Healthway Drive, across from the hospital in Berlin
• Dr. Mathias’s office at Snow Hill Family Practice, on N. Bay Street in Snow Hill
• Dr. Socha’s office at Ocean View Specialists, on Atlantic Avenue in Ocean View, Del.

And at:
Jerrold Canakis Gastroenterology, on Main Street in Berlin

Drop-off boxes for the phones and lip stick tubes can be found in each of these locations.
