A Holiday Tradition

The Jamestown Regional Medical Center Foundation is hosting the 23rd annual Tree of Love Dedication on Monday, December 14, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“This year, like most events, will be different,” said Lisa Jackson, JRMC Foundation Director. “We will host a Facebook Live event at 2 p.m. with prayer and dedication. Supporters can drive-thru during this time to purchase or pick up their ornaments.”

“The Tree of Love is one of my favorite holiday traditions. Even though we can’t gather together, it will still be a special time to reflect on the ones we honor, miss and love. We have two trees, one inside with the named ornaments ‘in honor’ and ‘in memory’ and one outside for our patients and families to enjoy,” Jackson said.

Ornaments are available for a donation of $10 or more online or by mail. Supporters can dedicate ornament tags to a caregiver who made a difference, a beloved spouse or family member, co-worker or friend.

“In addition to the gifted ornaments, JRMC Foundation also recognizes those who have passed away during the year who are either co-workers or provided a legacy gift through estate giving or their memorials,” Jackson said.

The proceeds raised from this event will go towards the fund of your choice or, if undesignated, a new educational app for expecting parents. JRMC Family BirthPlace welcomes about 350 babies each year. “The new technology will connect their parents to valuable, interactive content that is available anytime – from any device. The accessibility helps provide the best care to welcome our littlest patients, “said Emily Woodley, JRMC Family BirthPlace manager.

The technology cost is $6,000. The platform offers medically-accurate content that can also be customized to create a unique patient experience. Text, videos and animations are available on pregnancy, labor and birth, postpartum care, breastfeeding and newborn care.
