The Giving Tree

Throughout history, trees have stood as symbols of life. It is therefore quite fitting that the new "Giving Tree" has taken root in the lobby of Memorial Medical Center.

Made possible by the generosity of the hospital Volunteers, The Giving Tree is an original sculpture by artist Sanford Werfel of New Jersey made especially for Memorial Medical Center. Commemorative gifts donated in the honor or memory of someone special are timeless. Your gift honors a friend or loved one by establishing a permanent memorial. It will also enable Memorial Medical Center to continue to meet the community healthcare needs of tomorrow.

The purpose of The Giving Tree is to provide recognition for individuals, organizations and corporations for their generous gifts to the hospital. The tree contains 300 leaves. Beneath the tree are 12 stones and 12 plaques. Each leaf, stone and plaque will be engraved with the donor's name or a memorial inscription, recognizing gifts of various levels.

Families, individuals, companies and clubs will find this an appropriate way to honor the memory of friends and loved ones or to recognize a special person. Each inscribed leaf of The Giving Tree represents a donation. All donations aid in purchasing the special equipment and facilities needed to meet the growing needs of the citizens of our community. All gifts are tax deductible.

The Tree symbolizes people's willingness to provide help, hope and happiness to all patients. Your donation will become a permanent symbol of your compassion. For more information, please contact Alison King at (361)552-0450.
