The annual “Tree of Love” fund-raiser has begun at Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital; providing local businesses and individuals the chance to purchase ornaments honoring or remembering loved ones.
The proceeds go to the HGB Auxiliary, which uses the money raised for special purchases that enhance the services the hospital provides to the community. In years past it has helped purchase equipment such as blanket warmers and an Infiniti Vision System for cataract surgeries.
“We are grateful for the commitment of our HGB Auxiliary members who dedicate themselves to the Tree of Love project every year at the hospital,” said Kaleigh Jaeger, HGB development coordinator. “They provide a meaningful way for people to recognize or remember family, friends and heroes during the holiday season.”
Angie Foster, an HGB Auxiliary member, is this year’s Tree of Love coordinator. Ornaments feature ribbons with the name of your loved one and are displayed on the Christmas tree in the hospital lobby. The cost is $5 for a red bulb, $25 for a silver bulb and $50 for a gold bulb.
Ornaments can be purchased between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, until Wednesday, Dec. 24.
