Our annual Trees of Caring campaign was launched in November at Chartwell Queen’s Square Retirement Residence.
In addition to ‘tree light’ donations, three stars shone brightly on the Trees of Caring. This year’s Gold Star was sponsored by Faisal Susiwala. Faisal made a generous donation of $130,000 that is one dollar on behalf of each Cambridge resident!
The Silver Star was sponsored by former CMHF Board member Bob Cunningham and the Bronze Star was lit with a gift from the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary Branch 272, who have sponsored this star since 2003.
This is the eighth year that the hospital’s Trees of Caring has included a Coronation Boulevard corporate banner program. Eleven businesses and organizations donated a total of $5,500 to the overall Trees of Caring goal, a tremendous part of this year’s campaign!
Once again, Cambridge Toyota honoured each client who purchased a vehicle throughout November and December with a $25 donation to Trees of Caring.
Returning partners are so integral to the hospital’s ability to meet their ongoing equipment needs.
Another vital part of the Trees of Caring Campaign is the Angels of Caring. All Through the House crafts the Angels and helps to coordinate the program. This year’s design was very popular, and was available for purchase in eleven locations across Cambridge and North Dumfries including local TD and BMO branches, Langdon Hall and the CMH Gift Shop.
In 30 years, over 36,000 Angels have been sold to raise more than $100,000 for Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
This year Angels can be purchased through the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Volunteer Association.
