Hospice Sponsoring 25th Annual Trees of Celebration
The holiday season is a particularly appropriate time to remember both our departed loved ones as well as those who are currently special in our lives. Each year, Hospice of Chesterfield County’s “Trees of Celebration” has been enthusiastically supported by the community. Last year’s “Trees of Celebration” had over 2,000 bright white lights – each serving to honor or remember someone special.
Again this year, Hospice of Chesterfield County is sponsoring the “Trees of Celebration.” Trees on the lawn of the Hospice Building in Chesterfield, will again glow with the memorials and honorariums submitted by family and friends who make a $10 contribution to Hospice of Chesterfield County for each named light.
On December 4th, at 4:30 PM, there will be a lighting ceremony at the Hospice Building, located at 700 West Blvd. in Chesterfield, with the lights being illuminated and remaining lit through December 30th. The names of those being remembered or honored will be placed on each light and will be read during the ceremony. Donations must be received by November 29th to be included in the ceremony (donations will be accepted throughout December).
Brochures detailing donation information are available at The Sunshine Shoppe in Chesterfield and the Hospice of Chesterfield County offices in Chesterfield (700 W. Blvd.), Cheraw (160 Second St.) and Pageland (114 E. McGregor St.). Acknowledgements will be mailed beginning November 23rd.
“As with all tax-deductible contributions to Hospice of Chesterfield County, the funds derived from the ‘Trees of Celebration’ help to support our special kind of caring in the community,” Community Relations/Development Coordinator Cindy Beard said. “We are looking forward to repeating this radiant and meaningful way of honoring or remembering loved ones during the holiday season.”
