Trees of Hope

Through generous donations by area residents, the trees in front of the Brooks Health Centre are illuminated during the holiday season representing a Memorial and/or Merry Christmas wish. All funds remain in our community to enhance palliative care services. Tax-deductible receipts are available. This year’s donations closed December 10, 2019.
