DKH’s Annual Tree of Life Raises Over $31,000 for Hospice & Palliative Care of Northeastern CT
Story Number is : 122217101
Day Kimball Healthcare

Day Kimball Healthcare’s 28th annual Tree of Life Ceremony, held Sunday, December 3 at 11 locations across northeast Connecticut, has raised more than $31,000 to support hospice and palliative care services in the region according to the Day Kimball Healthcare Development Office, with some donations still coming in.

“It was such a beautiful event, as it always is, at all eleven sites across the region,” said DKH Development Director Kristen Willis. “We had a very nice turnout, including in the town of Eastford, which hosted its first Tree of Life this year. This event is just such a special tradition for so many families in Northeast Connecticut. It’s an opportunity to not only honor and remember loved ones who have passed during the holiday season, but to support the providing of hospice and palliative care for other individuals and families who are in need today.”

The purchase of memorial lights on each community's Tree of Life benefits the work done by Hospice & Palliative Care of Northeastern Connecticut, a service of Day Kimball Healthcare at Home, to enhance the lives of seriously and terminally ill patients and their families.

Ceremonies were held in the towns of Brooklyn, Canterbury, Eastford, Killingly, Griswold, Plainfield, Pomfret, Putnam, Sterling, Thompson and Woodstock. Activities at each location included holiday-themed musical entertainment by local chorus groups and the sharing of personal stories about the impact of hospice and palliative care on the lives of those served, culminating with the lighting of the ceremonial Tree of Life.
