FMH HOSTS ANTIQUE CHRISTMAS ANGEL TREE

Recently, the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Senior Life Solutions Department sponsored an Antique Christmas Angel Tree for older adults throughout the community who are in need or do not have any family nearby. Ornaments for each of the angels was placed on the Antique Christmas Angel Tree in the Senior Life Solutions Department. Information on the ornaments included the first name of the older adult along with items they desire or need. They needed simple things like a warm blanket or socks which can warm their hearts, minds, and bodies during this holiday season. This is our second year to host this program and we love being a part of it! The first year we were able to provide gifts for 25 people in our community. This year we shared the Christmas spirit with 84 older adults in our area.

“We were overwhelmed by the willingness of the people in our community and the FMH staff to help with this project. Between the local media and the Fairfield Memorial Hospital Facebook page we were able to have all of the ornaments claimed within a matter of days. Thank you to everyone who helped make this program such a success! The love and gratitude we received from each of the antique angels we encountered is something that our staff will never forget.” commented FMH Senior Life Solutions Director Susie Devoy RN.

 “It is truly a blessing to see so many people willing to give to such a wonderful cause this time of year.  The joy this brings to so many deserving people is indescribable. We are proud to be a part of such a loving and giving community.” stated FMH CEO, Katherine Bunting.
