Each donation to the “Lights of Love” will be given to help patients who are desperately in need. This is a wonderful way in which to remember someone. The decorations on the trees represent gifts in honor/in memory of a loved one or friend or to remember a special event or occasion. Unless otherwise requested, your name will be placed in a book which will be displayed beginning on November 7 and continuing through the holiday season at Willow Grove Park at our new location near the Nordstrom Rack entrance. From December 2 through the beginning of the New Year, a Lights of Love display will be featured in the Shorday Atrium at Abington Memorial Hospital.
Some examples of help given to patients through your donations are:
- Assisted with cost of hiring help at home for terminally ill patients
- Helped with mortgage for single mother with cancer
- Medication payments for patients with no prescription coverage
- Assisted with cost of oxygen
- Purchased a wheelchair for an amputee
Please consider giving to help others during this special season when we give thanks for all our blessings.
On behalf of the Women’s Board of Abington Health Foundation, we thank you for all your support and extend our very best wishes to you and your family for a beautiful and very happy holiday season.
