Make a donation to the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary's Tree of Remembrance Fund.
The Auxiliary is able to assist the hospital in purchasing needed equipment for various departments through the community's generous donations and memorials. Funds collected this year will be used to purchase Patient Care Bags for our Chemo/Infusion patients. These bags will include comfort items such as a blanket, socks, chapstick, stress ball, and other items that the patients can use during their treatments that they will be receiving at Memorial Hospital Chemo/Infusion Department. These care bags will help make the patient’s stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Those wishing to make a donation or memorial contribution in honor of a loved one may do so by mailing it to:
Tree of Remembrance Chairman Apryl Bradshaw
