PRINCETON — The Perry Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Tree of Lights committee kicked off its annual campaign at the Auxiliary Candy Cane event earlier this month.
Since 1990, more than $87,000 has been raised and donated to the hospital for needed equipment. This year, donations to the Tree of Lights will be used to purchase a Reagent refrigerator for microbiology in the laboratory.
The Tree of Lights is a special tree located on the north side of the hospital. A donation of $10 will light one light on the Tree of Lights and a donation of $100 will light a special light on the star. When a donation of $20 or more is given, an acknowledgement card will be sent to the person or family the donation is honoring. A tax deductible receipt will also be sent when requested.
For more information, contact Deb Kirley at 815-875-6565. Donations can be made at the Perry Memorial Hospital Gift Shop or can be sent to Melody Schultz at Perry Memorial Hospital, 530 Park Ave. East, Princeton.
