Thanks to our generous community we were able to surpass our goal of $265,000 for our Trees of Caring Campaign! Over 1,800 community members, associations, clubs and corporations sent gifts in memory or in honour of their loved ones to help light up the Trees of Caring.
There are three stars that shine brightly on the top of our Trees of Caring and each year these stars are sponsored by community members, local businesses and community groups. This year our Gold Star was sponsored for $5,000 by our closest corporate neighbour, BWXT Technologies Inc. Our Silver Star was sponsored for $2,500 by the staff and volunteers of CMH. Our Bronze Star was sponsored for $1,500 by the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxialliary Branch 272, who have been sponsoring our Bronze Star since 2003. Thank you to all of our Star Sponsors!
For over 30 years. All Through the House has created beautiful, handcrafted Angels of Caring. This year they designed a beautiful Angel with bright red details.

Over 30 years, we have sold over 33,000 Angels of Caring and raised over $100,000 for our Trees of Caring campaigns. Thank you All Through the House for partnering with us!
Once again, Cambridge Toyota partnered with the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation in the months of November and December. During those months, Cambridge Toyota donates $25 for every new or used vehicle sold. Thank you Cambridge Toyota for partnering with us once again to light up the Trees of Caring!
This is the seventh year that the hospital’s Trees of Caring campaign has included a corporate banner program. Banners are sponsored by area businesses and hung along Coronation Blvd for the holiday season. This year our Banner Program raised $14,500 from 34 community organizations. Thank you to these businesses for continuing to support this program!
