HOLYOKE — The Holyoke Hospital Auxiliary Association is continuing its annual tradition of remembrance with the Tree of Love, located in the lobby of the Holyoke Medical Center.
Remember your loved ones or honor the special people in your life by adding their name to the Tree of Love. A specially printed card placed on the tree will acknowledge your gift. The donation for remembering or honoring someone special in your life is $8 per person or $30 for 5 people. If desired, an acknowledgment will be sent to the person you designate.
Proceeds from this fund-raising event will be used to purchase a bariatric transport stretcher. This was requested by the Radiology Department to transport larger patients safely and comfortably. They will not only benefit patients, but will also help ensure the safety of staff. The cost is approximately $4,400.
The deadline for the ornaments to be guaranteed to be on the tree before the holiday is Dec. 19.
To request a form to list the names of people you would like to honor or memorialize, please call (413) 534-2547. Forms are also available in the Human Resources Department at Holyoke Medical Center. Checks should be made payable to HHAA (Tree of Love) and mailed, before Dec. 19, to Tree of Love, c/o Mary Kelleher, president, HHAA, 575 Beech St., Holyoke, MA 01040.
