News Release:

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. – This holiday season, Hospice of North Ottawa Community invites the local community to honor a loved one by making a donation to the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life will be on display in the lobby of Grand Haven’s Community Center from November 30 to December 31, 2011.

Donations made in memoriam or in honor of loved ones are recognized on individual, customized ornaments, featuring the honoree’s name. Each ornament is caringly placed on the Tree of Life by a Hospice volunteer, where it can be viewed and celebrated by all who visit.

Donations to the Tree of Life campaign give ongoing financial support that enables Hospice of North Ottawa Community to continue their mission of providing compassionate care for those dealing with terminal illness. That care includes the health system’s bereavement program that is available, free of charge, to anyone experiencing loss. A letter will be sent to each honoree or their family member(s) acknowledging gifts.

“Each year, Hospice of North Ottawa Community places the Tree of Life on display as a way to not only honor loved ones whom we’ve lost, but also in celebration of lives well-lived, “stated Wendy Creason, Fund Development Manager, Hospice of North Ottawa Community. Donations can be made by contacting Hospice of North Ottawa Community at (616) 846-2015.
