Donates $10,000 to support Nemours Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Program
Sept. 21, 2021 | Dover, DE – For the fifth consecutive year, Chesapeake Utilities Corporation’s (NYSE: CPK) propane distribution subsidiary, Sharp Energy, partnered with the Nemours Children’s Hospital in Wilmington, DE, in support of their Child Life Program. Sharp Energy presented a $10,000 check to the hospital during their “Help Our Kids” radiothon.
The contribution included proceeds from the Chesapeake Utilities’ Nemours Charity Bobtail, a truck used to transport propane gas that raises funds and awareness for Nemours Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Program. Sharp donates to the hospital for each gallon of propane delivered to its customers with the bobtail, and has contributed more than $50,000 over the past five years.
“Having a nationally recognized pediatric healthcare system in our area is a great community asset,” explained Andrew Hesson, vice president of propane operations. “Supporting the Nemours Child Life Program is not only a privilege, but a commitment to the families who live, work and play in the areas we serve.”
The Child Life Program helps support young patients during their time at Nemours by making the experience as positive as possible. Play is an important part of a child’s healing process, and the team of certified Child Life specialists at Nemours provide patients opportunities for activities that help to normalize their hospital stay.
