Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Home Health & Hospice department is accepting memorial and honor gifts for the 35th annual Tree of Love fundraising event for Hospice.

The official tree lighting and dedication of the Hospice tree is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2, at Heartwood in Crosby.

There will be a brief ceremony in Heartwood’s Conference Room to honor the names of all those for whom lights have been given. Following the program, a holiday tree will be lit for those whom lights have been given to honor or memorialize. Music, refreshments and reflection will begin at 4:15 p.m.

Donations to the Tree of Love will benefit CRMC’s Home Health & Hospice department, which offers compassionate care for people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness regardless of their financial resources. Hospice involves a team approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support. A vital part of hospice care is providing support to the family and loved ones of patients.

Home Health & Hospice accepts donations all year and the Tree of Love accepts donations through the end of December. To make sure the names of loved ones are received in time for the tree lighting ceremony, send contributions before Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Send a check payable to CRMC in the amount of $10 for each person to be honored or remembered to: CRMC Tree of Love, 320 E. Main St., Crosby, MN 56441. Provide the name of the person the gift is in memory or in honor of, and to whom a card of notification should be sent.
