Angelic Health Pays It Forward, Celebrates Be An Angel Day

Angelic Health visited EMS, fire, police, rescue and healthcare workers throughout southern New Jersey to deliver sweet treats as a thank you for their dedication to serve the community.

“At Angelic Health our mission is to make a difference every day for our patients and their families. It is challenging and rewarding work and we are honored to be in a profession that serves others,” said Angelic’s CEO Dan Mikus, MSW, MBA. “Be An Angel Day gives us an opportunity to thank community members for their service to others, especially this year during these challenging times.”

Not very well known, Be An Angel Day was established on August 22, 1993 as a way to encourage us to help others, and to remind us that even though we can’t be actual angels, we can emulate them and be kind to our fellow human beings.

Angelic Health Palliative & Hospice Care invites others to Be An Angel every day. Here are some tips:

• Be kind to others. Do something to help a stranger.

• Do random acts of kindness without any expectations of reciprocation. For example, give up your seat on the bus or train to someone else, pay for the coffee the person behind you may buy at the coffee shop, or leave a small gift in your neighbor’s mailbox.

• Volunteer your time and money to a charitable organization.

• Do something that will bring a smile to the face of people.

• If you know of someone who is going through a difficult time, give them your support and let them know that you are there for them. Help them out in their difficult times.

• If someone is being “an angel” to you, thank them and let them know that their kindness is appreciated.

Angelic Health Community Liaison Amber Smith made a few deliveries of sweet treats to EMS in Cumberland County, including Bridgeton Fire Chief Kevin Scarlatto, and Casey Shamenko, in Millville.
