As a thank you gift to the community, Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice will light its annual Tree of Life in Newton on the Harvey County Courthouse lawn.

The lights on the Tree of Life shine in remembrance of loved ones.

Donations can be made to honor a friend or loved one or in memory of a friend or loved one who has died. A $20 donation is honored with a light on the Tree; a $100 donor receives a light on the Tree, plus a collectable recycled porcelain ornament; a donor of $150 or more receives all of those benefits, plus the honoree is listed on the permanent Roll of Remembrance at Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice.

In acknowledgement of their gifts, all donors receive a paper ornament that may be passed on to an honoree or kept as a memento.

To reserve a light on the Tree or for more information, call (800) 767-4965.

The funds from Tree of Life help cover the costs of caring for uninsured or underinsured patients, and funding bereavement and volunteer programs.

Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice is the only non-profit hospice program in the area.

Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice, a non-profit agency, has been serving the terminally ill since 1983.
