Tree of Lights
The annual Tree of Lights Campaign is a longstanding community tradition that encourages community members to make a monetary donation in memory or in honour of someone special. Funds raised during the campaign benefit programs and services at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, making a significant difference in how care is delivered.
In its 34th year, the Tree of Lights Campaign
2020 donations will support Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s patients and clients.
Our patients have said that they are in need of some specific items that will help not only through the cold winter months, but also bring comfort through these challenging times. You can help through a very tangible way by fulfilling these specific needs by directing your donation to a specific item or by selecting "area of greatest need."
The items are:
A. Fleece blankets for patients of HDGH's Toldo Neurobehavioural Institute (TNI) while in the hospital and to take when discharged.
B. Both child and adult sized hats and glove/mitten sets for TNI patients and Regional Children's Centre (RCC) clients.
C. Grocery gift cards for clients of our crisis & community teams in both Windsor & Essex County.
D. HDGH cafeteria gift cards to be used by patients of our Rehabilitation and Restorative Care units.
E. Toiletry and self-care packages for our inpatients and RCC children.
F. Activity books, adult & children colouring books, journals, stickers & craft supplies.
G. Fidget toys, wind spinners, bubbles, child-size masks and mini hand sanitizers for our RCC children.
H. Area of greatest need.
How Tree of Lights Works
For every Tree of Lights donation you make, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare Foundation will hang a special ornament in memory or in honour of your loved one on our Christmas tree and send you a paper ornament for you to place on your own tree at home.
