Always Caring. Always Here.


Sometimes you just need a helping hand – and that’s exactly what a local needlework group did for patients in their community. In October, the Helping Hands Needlework Group from Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown donated over one hundred knitted and crocheted items for patients at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.

A majority of these handmade items were for the newest arrivals at Nanticoke – newborns! Helping Hands Needlework Group made hats, booties, sweaters and blankets to welcome these little ones with love to Sussex County. Their busy fingers didn’t stop there – the ladies also provided Prayer Pockets and mini Prayer Shawls for patients at Nanticoke.

Nanticoke would like to thank the Helping Hands Needlework Group for their dedication to Nanticoke’s mission to positively impact our communities’ quality of life through superior health service. To learn how you can help make a difference, visit
