CDH to Kick Off Trees of Love & Thanksgiving Campaign
NORTHAMPTON — The trees in the Healing Garden at Cooley Dickinson Hospital will again be aglow this holiday season, and a lighting ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 4:30 p.m., will kick off the 15th annual Trees of Love & Thanksgiving fund-raising campaign.
Community members are invited to remember or honor a loved one through a donation of $15 per individual to the Trees of Love & Thanksgiving, a project of the Cooley Dickinson Hospital Auxiliary and Pastoral Care. Proceeds from this annual fund-raising initiative support the purchase of equipment that enhances patient care at Cooley Dickinson. Funds raised in 2014 will provide infant car beds, which are critical to ensuring the safety of underweight babies, and will support an infusion bay in the hospital’s new comprehensive Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Previous Trees of Love campaigns have supported 3-D mammography, which provides earlier cancer detection; and infant car beds.
Those wishing to donate can pick up a form at any hospital information desk or download a form. In addition to lights on the trees in the Healing Garden, the names of those being honored and remembered will be posted in the corridor adjacent to the hospital’s main lobby.
The Cooley Dickinson Auxiliary supports the hospital in its commitment to provide quality healthcare for the community through volunteerism, fund-raising, and advocacy. For more information, e-mail [email protected].
