The annual “Christmas Trees of Love” project allows community members to honor or memorialize loved ones through the purchase of lights for the trees. Different colors of lights are chosen depending on who they honor. A white light memorializes a deceased loved one, a green light honors a relative or friend, and a red light honors a special child or pet. Lights can be reserved for a donation of $5 or more.
Along with having a symbolic light on the tree, a card will be sent to the honoree or family of the memorialized, and their name(s) will be inscribed in the “Book of Love,” which will be on display in the hospital lobby during the holidays. To dedicate a Tree of Love light or view the online Book of Love, visit sheridanhospital.org/treesoflove.
2022 Tree Lighting Ceremony
On Sunday, December 4, the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Auxiliary invites the community to join us for the Christmas Trees of Love open house from 4:30 to 5:00 PM. It will be hosted at the SMH Patient Lobby, where attendees can enjoy music, refreshments, and view the Book of Love. The event will conclude with the lighting of the trees on the Sheridan Memorial Hospital lawn and our festive Santa Claus on top of the hospital roof.
Please make all donations by Monday, November 28, for acknowledgment at the lighting ceremony. Anything received after the Trees of Love ceremony, will likely be acknowledged after January 1, 2023.
